Usually write a poem for 9/11. This year, words utterly fail. Reposting one from two years ago, tweaked it a bit.
I will remember. Can't forget.

"Fear of Fallin ..."
... thru air so cold
so bit/ter it
heats on the way
(kept feet firmly
to solid ground;
k n e w where they were
all times, all hours,
to throw me off
the edge, screaming .. . ..).
Then came that day.
Not given a
choice: Burn. Or jump.
Hell of a note.
Man not equipped
with angel's wings.
to soar like birds ...
and yet, I flew .. . ...

|Reviewed by Swan Son
|Your thoughts are mine ... in particular as I drove home from New York City the other night and saw a spotlight shining upwards .... my first thought was wondering what it was ... then I realized it was a spotlight in memory of the building that fell and all those who perished within. I remembered those who jumped rather than burn -- and the families that are doomed to remember this. May they rest in peace and love with God. Susan|
