Reflections


September's sorrow
Cascade of tears, to water
Near the tower's grave

Poet's Notes about The Poem

(9/11/13) so somber the memorial sight in lower Manhattan, that now, houses thousands of angels. An anniversary that should be observed by all. Let freedom ring...especially in these tense times, where we again face the threats of evil against innocent people. May there be a peaceful resolve in Syria, as we have seen, firsthand, what destruction does to everyday life.

    The chosen words just right
    the september....tower...and rain...it just described the remembrance of tragedy very well.
    Oh i wish if i can have this world just 1 hour in happiness and no war...just 1 hour...
    back in reality, even to have this within 5seconds almost impossible
    but i never give up for humanity_Soul (Report) Reply
