Reliving Flights (From Hospital) - Poem by NORMAN ROSS
Recall love, Recall hate,
Recall palm trees, pine trees, oaks.
Recall oceans, rivers, lakes;
Dry them, the all consuming oceans,
Dry the seas of tears.
Suck them up through parched lips
Quench the overwhelming thirst-or die!
Recall friends, enemies, fleeting acquaintances,
Recall dark, Recall light,
Recall purple hills, mountains, jagged rocks-
Deep, misty fog!
Gray, shadowy dusk!
Over bottomless chasms,
Still, soundless villages,
Sleepless cities and sandless deserts-
Over the steaming jungle's bomb-sprayed beaches.
Over hills, perilous mountains,
Parched fields, fruitless harvests.
Over rotted, rusted ships beneath the
And white-stoned graves and crosses
Row on row.
Recall the birth of life!
Recall the advent of Death!
Recall a mother's womb.
Recall the final breath.
