Restored #forgiveness #poetry #uganda

They curse the dry unyielding ground stubble from impotent crops remain toppled huts call out in anger “we will never be whole again they have maligned our children destroyed our spirit” only bitter weeds grow strong *** lovingly they pour water on hardened ground fingers soiled with ancestral dirt music filters through new huts goldenContinue reading “Restored #forgiveness #poetry #uganda”

War Torn #Peaceonearth #poetry

  I held a Sudanese hand it fit so small in mine I caught a ragged smile I wished I had more time We sang a song of praise they dance with all their might their mamas and their papas they lost them in war’s night fortitude and strength the littlest they stand hope, faith,Continue reading “War Torn #Peaceonearth #poetry”

man size stripes children forced to bare who will make this right cold hard becomes the stare *** wire cuts clean through  innocence dies sign our own doom none believe the lies * children pay the price no money can repay history must think twice there is a judgement day My Focus this month isContinue reading “wire #children #atozchallange”

One Cannon #haiku #memorialday

rough log house surviving century’s seasons feather beds * beneath cool shade verdant battlefield covers scars blood stains * whistling through reeds sun warms each blade of grass soldiers memories …And they fell.

Silenced #hiroshima #poetry #poem

  Awakened from deafening noises pushing away this long night mare unsuccesful I rub my dark eyes trying to look through a dusty cloud I shake cob webs that I wear Looking in a mirror I lay back on the floor  fear grabs me as I  curl up knowing that this dream must end orContinue reading “Silenced #hiroshima #poetry #poem”
