A Poem: An Ode to Israeli and Lebanese Mothers


 



Google posted these pictures under mothers.


Please note that I love people and this poem is merely a relfection of the sadness I feel for the families in between.


A Poem of Tribute: An Ode to Israeli and Lebanese Mothers


She watched


As bombs splintered


her world;


At the edge


Of dawn


The helicoptor


Stopped;


Her children


Rushed in;


Pathos:


Pathos and Chaos


Hermea and Claudius


A wrinkle


Removed


From a Sane World


Her Life is


A steeple chase;


She runs


Down the pathway


Of  Time; panting;


Will the children


Make it


On time?


She is eager


To avoid


Pandora's


box


As


The World


rushes past her.

You bring the heartache, the fear, and the panic these mothers must feel into our minds with this poem, Natalie. I can tell that when you watch the news, you feel the suffering, and the despair, the sorrow, and the spiritual exhaustion of people far away, living amidst bombs and missiles and buildings exploding, people dying in fear... must they keep running? Must we keep running? bea
