Seeing the reality is more than thinking of it.

A Day in the Sands



The sun breaks over the visual plane


Clouds of white dot the sky


Human figures arise from shabby shacks.


Surrounded by block and clay buildings

Tin and cardboard, old clothe shrouds—

Cries of babies and children abound

Hunger from their bellies screams out.


Winds blow softly,

Sand pelts against my skin—

As I gaze across the barren land

I see the army moving slowly.


Moving towards the village—

All are bent on engagement

Of friend or foe, and in the evening,

The sky blackens with a stench.


The bodies’ lay on sand crumpled—

The parts of skin, fingers, human fragments

All too visible in the sunlight,

All too visible in the darkness of my mind.
