Dancing Waters

Dancing Waters They drop like leaves They cut themselves like Branches They transfer their heart to their back They paint themselves in red The guns and boots are resurrected They tattoo the ground with their footprints They create a black cloud in the Atmosphere Tears Flow like the Saskatchewan River They feed themselves to the mouths of the earth They beat the drums of discord They chants the songs of hatred They dance to the tunes of their misguided conscience They sting themselves like buzzing bees Stitches and needles waiting to sew the clothes of mourning under the morning sun Black and white costumes filling the earth with their unending tears They dry their tears under the consoling arms of sympathisers They wear an expression of remorse They set their conscious free from the shackles of war Author: Ginikachi Obah

Ginikachi, Welcome to Poetry soup, I hope you enjoy the community. Here, you will find friendly poets who enjoy supporting one another. I myself, enjoy reading and commenting those who want to be read. The only time I give constructive criticism is when a poet desires it. However, if for some reason the poem is not my field I will guide you to someone who is more qualified than I. Stop by and read one of my poems if you like. My poems are not perfect, but I have a feeling you might like one. I encourage you to check out the contest page and read to receive comments. Tell me a little about your poetic skills if you like. It will be my pleasure to follow and read every poem you post from here on :) We are Lucky To Have you. Your New Poet Friend @-> LINDA <-@
