1.
Conflict Zone
Thousands dead, thousands injured
Thousands had to flee
Millions of residents in a conflict zone
Wondering if they'll ever be free
...
2.
The Sands Of Time
The sands of time eroded that
broad smile from your face but
of that carefree ebullient character
I still can see some trace
...
3.
By The Lakeside
Velvet reed mace by the lakeside
Swans glide on the mirror serene
Buttercups gold among grasses
In heat haze a calming scene
...
4.
Courage
'I brought some flowers'
I said to the nurse at the desk
She told me to take them home
Saying they weren't usually left
...
5.
Just Passing Through
I took a trip down memory lane
along the byways last September
Pointing out familiar places
and events I well remember
...
6.
Were You There?
Were you there when they needed
Your reassurance day and night
When trials and terrors came, did you
dry their tears, hug them tight
...
7.
The Bird Hide
A bird hide fashioned in willow
With a high wooden bench to sit on
A long discreet viewing slit
A moorhen appears, then it's gone
...
8.
It Had Made Her Heart Stone
She knew it too well
That look, that tone
The effort it took
To try stop a cyclone
...
9.
A Lesser Hell
'Get out now', the feeling screamed
That was not the life she dreamed
She hastily gathered documents needed
The life she knew quickly receded
...
10.
The Otter
Crossing a wooden bridge
To get to the wood beyond
I glimpse an otter diving
Just beside me in a pond
...
