Syrian Refugee Tidal Arrival Wave Agony - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

tidal arrival is wave agony
a Syrian man a refugee
still standing in shallows

dark undercurrent shadows
epic fleeing war mass millions
Syria torn apart tear politics

a coastline seashore reached
soon to emerge from the sea
face in stress trauma twisted

his daughter in green life jacket
held in father's right arm clings
to his neck for security comfort

held above cold water threat
slightly older son buries face
in father's chest is held tight

still standing waist deep in waters
fears crossing illegal to Europe to
unknown veiled future uncertainties
