Afghanistan

millennium eyes
sigh with no smile
years gone by
on the face of a child
memories run greener
than the deepest of seas
history is never forgotten
in the confines within:
behold! the truth and
all of it’s consequences.

And It Snowed

it snowed cherry blossoms
in the garden of your neighbor
while the war bleeds in many places
i drink pink lemonade and eat pretzels
i would like to share with kids in the camps
and pass out balloons while they try to play
didn’t you know somewhere
it snowed cherry blossoms
for them today?
