United Nations Plaza

Temperature dip
urban leaves turned
Autumn, sniffing around
for a place to settle
no Farmer's Market
in San Francisco today.

Lost Wars dedicated to Remembrance and Veterans Day

When on Remembrance Day
There is no one at the parade
The war is lost
Dead heroes’ died in vain

This shall be a countries shame

Haiku 26 Echoes




                   mountains, fields, forest

                             stand witness to the blood cries

                                            the song of freedom

The meaning of the flags with stars

See the flag
with two stars
in the white
surrounded by heart

honor pride
courage and love
the whole package from above

god is here
in us all
in the soldiers
who rise and fall

give your love 
and warm hearts
to the men away
doing their part

See the flag
with two stars
in the white
surrounded by heart

Short Veterans Day poem by Peter Thomas| Details | |

Nothing to lose

Broken, Cold, Empty, Devoid of hope
These are the forgotten generation
These are the few who stood up
The young that fell for such a cause

Lost, scarred, unremembered,
These boys sent with hope of glory
Learn instead what it costs
To die a nameless death

Over they go with nothing to lose
Over they fall with nothing to lose
Over they die with nothing to lose

We Are a Poem

http://youtu.be/p79ztWTnugE

You will not 
    seperate us.
For it is hate
    and love that made us.
It is the great and the small
    that reverberate within our bones.
It is every syn and antonym,
every opposite every known,
    the many, the alone.
         We are a poem.
You will never 
    isolate us
for it is truth
    and art that made us.
         We are a poem.

Man Slaughter

Who can curse the panga? With it we defend our territory Who can bless the panga? By it we lost our kinsmen Trounce Bounce Butcher Who can love or hate the panga Roll Troll Wail Who doesnt one a panga? war woes foes The pangas we keep for our privilege The monsters that tear our tatters As we cut our adversary our brothers perish

war

i wittnessed a war just yesterday,
being the reason for much dismay,
i'm sorry for all the death and blood,
and all the soldiers in the mud,
i wish i could stop it just can't be done,
i'll need everybody including a nun,
i'll need jesus to forgive our sins,
that knock us down like bowling pins,
i'll need everybody to read this poem,
in hopes that all the soldiers get back home.

a soldier peom

there is a soldier who is dying while
there is a soldier who is crying

there is a soldier who is weeping while
there is a soldier who is sleeping

there is a soldier who is had moved away while
there is a soldier who is had passed away

there is a soldier who is standing while
there is a soldier who is praying 

there is a soldier who has left home while
there soldier who has come home

Short Veterans Day poem by Cheyenne Marbury| Details | |

Thank You

Thank you to our soldiers:

For standing in the line of fire
You are the best example of what this country can acquire
I know that being away from your family isn’t easy
Thinking about your sacrifice always makes me feel queasy
The battle that you are currently fighting in
Makes living day to day feel like such a win
Without you, our eagle would not soar
So thank you very much for fighting this war

Water Fountain Sculpture

multi-cultural mecca
Farmers' Market at the United Nations Plaza,
San Francisco

water fountain sculpture
misting through the
jazz audience at lunchtime, 
during the weekday summer concert series

poetry gives me new eyes
situated right in front of my 
heart ~ sigh

A wiley seagull bathing
under a pressure close to a full
blast, water sculpture mist curls my hair

And I forget the littered alley I walked through
a second ago

Our Veterans

Our Veterans fought for the USA so that we can be free.
They're important to you and they're important to me.
Some Veterans have ended up homeless and that isn't right.
After what they did for their country, they suffer this plight.
Veterans should be honored for their bravery because they're heroes.
If it hadn't been for Veterans, we would've lost our freedom long ago.

(Dedicated to all of the USA Veterans on Veterans Day.)

Short Veterans Day poem by Gerald Kithinji| Details | |

Victims of Want

Had there flowed blood 
In our peasants’ veins
We’d have built bridges
To join our several ridges.

Then the many exiled peers
Might re-cross the flooded streams
That had divided their dreams
And pilloried the science of seers.

But the fire of want 
Had our people dehydrated
And those (like me) who bled yet
Were catalogued to a grim existence.


O posterity!
Do not disdain our delicacy;
For time is multiplex
And might your ship dis-mast!

Short Veterans Day poem by Naji Almurisi| Details | |

All the feasts will sing


All the feasts will sing

Let us dance

Let us sing

Let us celebrate

The whole world will dance

The whole world will sing

The whole world will celebrate

Even the feasts will sing
Will dance
Will celebrate

Passover
Christmas
The Prophet's Birthday
Mother's Day
Labor Day
Valentine's Day

All the feasts will sing

All the feasts will dance

All the feasts will celebrate

All the feasts will say

Life is beautiful

Life is a short dream

Let us enjoy it.

Short Veterans Day poem by Timothy Emmons| Details | |

Still A Soldier

I lay here today a soldier
I know some don't understand
I will try to explain
So maybe you can

I served my country
For many a year
I retired long ago
The soldier still here

I put on my uniform
I wore it to foreign lands
The soldier I was
Is still in the man

I have been a husband, father, and friend
To some of you here
But I've been a soldier all along
Even after so many a year

My final salute
I render today
I'm still a soldier
I'm just on my way

Short Veterans Day poem by Luann Pfost| Details | |

not lost , not forever

in honor of David J. Bredesen

Three days after your arrival in Vietnam you were gone
but you are not lost to us, not forever 

Your parents who grieved so stand by your side now.
together you wait for the rest of us.
and you are not lost to us, not forever

our children who never knew you are asking us about you
about what happened and why and how we felt 
as we tell of you and the family I think they feel for a moment as we did then
 and you are not lost to us or them not forever.


Short Veterans Day poem by Stephanie Weeks| Details | |

Remembering 9-11

	Remember those who died for us,
Remember nine-eleven,
They left their families to save us,
They died and went to heaven.
	Remember the twin towers,
They once were there but now are gone,
Remember those who went to work,
Who never came home.
	Remember the God who gave us life,
Who can save us from death,
Remember He’ll never leave our side,
In sickness and in health.
	They left their family to save us,
They died and went to Heaven,
Remember those who died for us,
Remember nine-eleven.
