Hi readers and followers,
Please take the time to read this post, and participate if you can!
Deadline is 31st August 2016. Here is my poem for #PoetsForPeace
Beneath muddied army uniforms
Split, poisoned blood
Being made to choose between
heaven and hell
Collateral damage took on a meaning
And bone-thin children, glassy-eyed
Shot through with the pain of generations
Peer at us from flickering screens
Somewhere along the way
we inevitably forgot to ask ourselves,
Are we not all made of the same
With blood running through us?
This collaboration is initiated by my talented friend Michael (M. Zane McClellan) from the poetry channel and will be hosted here on forgottenmeadows. Many wonderful bloggers like Marie (https://writingwingsforyou.com/), Kim (https://zipsrid.wordpress.com/) and others have helped in putting this together and spreading the word out. The deadline for contribution is August 31st, 2016! I urge you to help us make this creative effort successful by joining in.Below is Michael’s message:
“In response to the recent unceasing, and, in fact escalating global violence, we have seen and felt a corresponding surge in poetry about it.
We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to share your thoughts and feelings, a piece of yourself, to add to other Poets from around the world. We are hopeful that the combined weight of our collective spirit and wisdom will be felt worldwide as well.
