Hard Place

Hard Place

Remembering peace
gathering together
living beside each other
without the chilling
sting of grief
that now touches
all of us

as trunk-load of violence
is unleashed to fly
like a twisted wind
whistling through teeth
of an arrogant man
who would be king.

Note: I’ve been absent for some time because of health issues. My site seems to have taken on a few new tricks, some of which do not allow me to respond to your comments. Sorry about that and hope to figure it all out eventually. In the meantime, know that I do appreciate your words and thoughts and thank you for taking the time to read and leave them.

    Very apt for the current climate at times, Elizabeth. The peace is still hanging on in there, however! 😀

    I wonder whether your country has ever felt this feeling of fear and unrest before from within this country of yours. I am sure the whole world is getting nervous.

  8. So glad to see you here! Hope you are feeling better. A trunkload of violence just about says it all. Very sad.
