As I Sit Here - Poem by Lily Espinosa

As I sit here with
Good company, good music, good food,
I feel a cool breeze on my back,
See the sun shining outside the window,
Watching icy blue clouds pass me by.

And I think,
On a day as beautiful as this
Its hard to fathom the horrors
That remain unseen.

    isn't that a mystery? I recently saw a movie about World War I (A Very Long Engagement) . Midway through the movie, some people re-visited the site of horrible trench warfare, a few years later...all fields of waving, tall grass, woods nearby...beautiful. Some soldiers have even written how beautiful the place they're camped, before a battle makes hell of it. What subjects for poetry! (Report) Reply
