1957


[image from Pinterest]

where candles flicker
shock and horror visited -
hearts weep for lost ones

fifteen years ago
the face of history changed -
World Trade center bombed

mornings reoccur -
peace questions the wildflowers
striving without care

I'm not so hopeful today, but I do wish for peace and justice. Thanks for the Nat King Cole song. He's a favorite.

I love you tribute poem for 9/11. What a terrible day that was. I remember it like it was yesterday. I wish the world was a safer more secure place. Maybe we just need to acceptance and love of others. Hope all is well. Hugs-erika
