And yet a sense of foreboding permeates the midnight air

beneath a star studded vista
a resplendent guiding light
arms open, palms up, she is...

trying to remember what tragedy had sent her to this shabby place.
Her heart felt...
child, cry, daughter, grief,
like visitors from outer space
they came with tears, and lined the sidewalk
long in face, and arms embracing
some (I have no inkling) who
they were or why...
Silence of the Butterflies
grief, lost love,
As sunrise silently
marinaded morningtide meadows,

children, drug, grief, hurt,

Mothers screaming mournfully at a deaf sky
