Empty spectre
Encompasing boundless grief
Vacant cradles rock silently


Bringing ruin
Shades haunting memory
Lost generations asking why

  3. This was a difficult piece to convey the emotions of those survivors of war, those who have lost their loved ones, perhaps their homes, and society as they once knew it. Very sad.

    Beautiful Cinquains, Sue. I loved them both but that first one really got me. Beautiful and heart-wrenching. When will we learn? ❤ xx
