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
planted, rooted
to solid ground;
k n e w  where they were
all times, all hours,
no surprises

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.

Not created
to soar like birds ...

and yet, I flew .. . ...

(c) 2007, Revised, 2009, Karla Dorman

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

9/11 fills my heart with repugnance towards some of man species that God could have had the heart to send directly to His promised Hell.

I'm the same way. I haven't, nor will I write anything. My heart is just not there.
Reviewed by Jeanette Cooper
Your poem is imaginative and descriptive and God forbid that anything like 9/ll will ever happen again.
