Kaleidoscope

IMG_4166

Height

genes played strong

towering over the pull of gravity

eyes ablaze at the illusion

Accent

just expressions

they gathered in the love of a land

waves of voices in protest

Communities

eyes wet in collective shock

acknowledge each other’s loss

walk in silent chains of arms

Food

is a wonderful prayer

served in recuperating bowl fulls

with delicate cautious hands

Prayer

in prose written, poetry said

mother saying not to forget

the longing for her dead

Missile

premise being evolution

loud, louder, loudest they shout

small stories spewed by big mouths

Dreams

interwoven in border tales

threaded fears of legal stamps

dreams lingering like bookmarks

Color

bleached in apprehension today

white washed walls stare in exhaustion

years of indecisiveness may end

Politics

is caricatured in shabbiness

narrow minds court hesitant history

hoisting into imminent chaos

Grief

rowing boats across highways

lingers at drenched post box pillars

aches on restless backs of responders

Cities

live the survivor’s guilt

looking skyward at disheveled reflections

of life, then proud of its copious humanity

Purpose

modest moments of triumph

barring the amateurish clumsiness of power

humanity offers a formidable resilience

kaleidoscope

kaleidoscopic emotions

that mirror an abyss of memories

and bruised hopes
