~ 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.
