Day of Despair

With echoes of despair upon the day Near the rim of the world, a storm provokes A great noise and the past is chased away Dispersed into shadows like shifting smoke I feel the first sting of tears in my throat Falling as specks, scattered puffs on the sand Unleashed was a flood of such grief, unplanned

    Oh, Carrie, what a truly emotional yet well written poem. As we approach the mark of ten years since this horror, it feels like the world is holding its breath, worried at what may happen. God Bless New York and the USA- from a Canadian who wishes the world would find a way to live in peace, and that hatred become a term we need to look up in a dictionary... Hugs Cyndi. PS. This is a top winning poem, if I've ever seen one!
