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


Her children

Rushed in;


Pathos and Chaos

Hermea and Claudius

A wrinkle


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




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
