Gravestones, white crosses
bone-chill breaths of old ghosts, stirs-
Dried, blood-red poppies.

Hiroshima-Nagasaki

Shadows only remain
Where life stood its ground
Far above their air
Its devastation burned down

(To all those who have lost from war...)

Those who fought for us,never thought to ignore us....

With the intent not to bend but restore us.

tanka revolution

Tanka 
Working class people 
Do not trust socialist intellectuals
Don´t get lured by them 
They are upper middle class people 
Who want to run your revolution.

Best foot forward

Front-line in depth of mortar
Whistling shells and screams of torture
Blood clott gurgles death bell tolls
Hell of pain in body enthralls
Danger rings apprehension stalls

A Salute To The Fallen

Brass handles, polished,  
Purple  satin,  heavenly,  
Perfect   wedding   suit,  
National   flag   neatly  draped.
I  salute  thee,  soldier   mine!

THE BANK JOB

Out of the bank I ran.
Money and gun in hand.
Bumped into a marching band.
Kids let out a scream.
A flash back from my dream.
Frown on my face,
as cops gave chase.
They screwed up my plan.
In the alley I made the last stand.

You

You
are beautiful.
like the moon.
cracked and cratered.

You
life meteors.
bombard.

You
do not pull away.
from the earth.
enlightened and light.

Solitude




The unattainable
    Boundaries'
Of Solitude
    Diminishes
With the Will
   Of God'
And drifts away
   To sand...

Short Memorial Day poem by Connie Gildersleeve| Details | |

Memorial Day

soldiers gave their lives-
enormous price for freedom
Gray clouds in morning



*An unofficial beginning of summer with a long weekend of BBQ's, beer and having fun, but 
we all should take a few moments and remember the real meaning of Memorial Day.

Short Memorial Day poem by randy johnson| Details | |

Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day.
We're paying tribute to those who died for the USA.
Many soldiers died so that we can be free.
It means a lot to you and it means a lot to me.
Some fought with guns, others fought with tanks.
They gave everything for us and I give my thanks.

Short Memorial Day poem by The Eminent MGK| Details | |

For Orlando

Forcibly taken lives
for a vicious motive.
Shock, terror —blood and tears.

Rest the souls in peace,
pity those who had lost
and solace to alike around.

Fear not my brothers, sisters and friends;
stand up and fight for who you are—
until the Love win over Hatred.

Short Memorial Day poem by Rodgers Roger Muhereza| Details | |

Old son, Young Dad

He died forty
with strength and wit
He left a son Young and young

He died nighty 
With bones no teeth
He left a boy pale and forty

They meet in paradise
Dad still forty
Son at nighty
Dad thought it was grand pa
Son thought he was grand son
Who had died also
