Still the sun shall rise

Another spring,
footy finals fever,
the American Open,
the sun shines,
impartial.

Trepidation
written on my children’s faces
watching towers fall,
deep felt knowledge,
tomorrow
still the sun shall rise.

I pray a requiem,
eternal memory
for all brave souls,
shining beacons
rest in peace.

  3. Pausing and remembering, being in touch with our past enough to tread in a more wise way into our futures where the sun rises every day … the hope of peace. Beautiful and mindful, Marsha. Q x
