A Day When the Sun Never Rose #Dec7 #pearlharbor #history #poem


pearl

A

Sunshine Day

In paradise

Suddenly

Deliberately

An Attack

On Freedom

War

Engages

***

While many were sleeping

others would be laid

to an eternal rest

at the bottom of a harbor floor

no satin lined casket

mother nor lover planted a last kiss

your bodies  more water than man

***

on this day of memories

we take a stand

for a world

where

there

will

be

no

WAR

I’m sharing this archived poem with Poet’s Pantry Today.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. War with all of its ills of destruction and death didn’t seem to deter. That was 1941 and now still raging. This time in pockets around the globe. Peace sought but never fulfilled for various reasons! Great lines Moonie!

  2. A strong poem, Leslie. And, alas, today (December 7) is the 72nd anniversary of that ‘day of infamy.’ So many deaths, and a beginning of a new chapter in WWII. And yes, if only there were a world without war.

  3. The tropical island setiing with nice weather does not correlate with the full scale destruction that happened. If the generals had read Hannibal’s Punic Wars they would not have made this blunder leaving an entire fleet exposed.

  4. Hi Leslie!

    While many were sleeping
    others would be laid
    to an eternal rest

    The world moves on but may we never forget.

    How are you keeping Leslie – take care and Merry Christmas! I know I haven’t been around for ages. But do think of you fondly when I see the name MoonDustWriter!
