a silent moment

today i sit
in silence
beneath darkness
in remembrance

the sky 
didn't get the memo
its thunderous roar
is echoing 
across the hills
crumbling 
my chain of thoughts
like buildings
lost

flashbacks
blinking
in fragmented
bolts of lights
like explosion
of mind

grounded shadows
falling down
all around 
like lives
gone

its anger 
lashing in streams
stinging like tears
against my face

perhaps
it’s just lashing out
in remembrance too

A lovely tribute you wrote Sandy..I heard the silence, and the anger..a day we will never forget. They came here and abused our freedom.

Thank you Vijay...i remember the silence for weeks to follow, not planes in the skies, every where you went flags displayed, the songs written by artists, the closeness...shame the world has grown so distant through the years........hugs :)

I just loved this, how your words enticed nature to be a part of the remembrance of that day, how you portray the sky crying and the dark clouds a sign of sadness. This was amazing my friend.

So many of us knew people who died that day or who was affected by the loss Sandra. You have captured that anguish and pain wonderfully in this tribute to the loss that day. May they rest in peace! xxoo

I still remember the chaos of that morning, we just headed home from our buses, got home to parents leaving their homes to pick children up at schools, everyone hugging each other tighter the respect of flags and the sadness in the depths of silence of this nation :) hugs
