Change of Days

Change of Days

You are like the best

friend that came to visit

and now must go away

my only consolation is that

it is autumn’s turn to stay.

Insurmountable Odds

thunder claps boom with

intermittent lightning bolts

zigzagging their way

flashing, lighting up the

mountainous cloud

of billowy,

surging strength

as it climbs

trying desperately

to kiss the sky

rising against

insurmountable odds

just as we all strive to

every day, we are alive.

What We Cannot Deny

What We Cannot Deny

(For ALL The Refugees, (Aylan, 3 & Galip, 5)

lying there face down in the sand

along the coast in his

red shirt, blue shorts, small black shoes

somebody’s sweet child,

their son, lifeless

washed ashore from

their struggle against

immeasurable odds to escape

a war ravaged torn country

only to find the same fate

that they tried so desperately

to flee from

and all some do is argue

over photos that show us

what we have become…
