~ In remembrance of all those we lost on 9/11/2001 ~



              

We gazed upward and saw horror on the wind.

They could've been us.

 

Surrealism ripped away our complacency

and threw us down to earth:

billowing explosions; clouds of smoke; dust and ash.

 

We gazed upward to what vanished on the wind.

They could've been us.

 

Shock diffused the nightmare of day,

lifting the veil of our separation:

bodies falling hand-in-hand; desperate acts of hope.

 

We gaze upward seeking a memory on the wind.

They could've been us.

 

A prayer rises with our love, a flag flutters with their breath.

Breathe in, breathe in their lives.

Their souls surround us. They are now us - on the wind.

Very beautiful. The noise, and then nothing, just them as they pass in the wind.

You have reminded me of that Bob Dylan song, Blowing in the Wind. Let's hope the winds of the future will be more peaceful.

Oh, my word, Vicky. This surrounds me and leaves me in tears -- they could have been us. Beautifully, heartbreakingly penned and illustrated. Thank you.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
