survival – remembrance

what

i f

there was no one there
t o recall

that their parents once
uttered something

about the p a s t

under sealed lips

and by
a c c i d e n t

would we sit here today
in
c o m m u n i t y

noting our
duties for
t o m o r r o w ?

i look at you
and love you
without even
knowing your
name

because others
taught me to

remember

the struggle woven
into
the lines of
y o u r
face

are attached
to
the tattered strings
of my
mother’s childhood

to the bend
at each road of our
country’s
compromises

to the loose ends
of
the history, we stare
at each other from
opposite ends, flagged,
to see we hold the
same fabric

WCC Day 19 – Week 3: The Moon’s Influence…dreams, cycles, senses

Moon Memory

it is not deja vu

it is
nice to see you
again
.
.

it is not an accident

it is
we are here together for a
reason
.
.

it is not coincidence

it is
you and i make perfect
sense
