an original poem


the future tense
and nervous)words
that always bring to bear
the artillery of NEVERS
to be sounded through
the forest of darker
trees in which no birds
can nest(
the bombs fell

one day became other
as the moon red and disappearing
and the sun red and cooling
burns with ice
theseshattered dreams

no will triumph
only when i can also say yes
i knew him when the sun was bright
when stars grew around the moon
and people were beautiful
and children laughed

This made my eyes mist Fr Kurt. A nostalgic beauty...
too sad, but ends in hope...
