Blood Spills

Blood Spills

A Poem by Christine Anne Shaw
"

(Forbury Gardens 20thJune, terror on the doorstep)

"
blood spills while Saturday fades
on lawns grown lush with green
refreshed from falls of recent rain
where scented flora fills balmy air
where innocents have convened
to fritter their time away happily

blood spills where daisies grow
in a town park fondly known
where our people find tranquility
share picnics with their dearest ones
yet their fun forever spoiled, silenced
by blades of hate raining down
where blades of soft grass cry out
in unimagined pain

I can't even express how much reading this write wrenches my heart. The unpredictability of negative weather is really really dangerous. Even if we stay alert, it may not work when the stabs rain suddenly. The imagery is painful but like always you penned down the event beautifully.

This is our reality, the inevitable collision of nature and humanity. We seem determined to destroy the goodness for our own ephemeral slice of life. Not even an ocean divides tragedy or pain. Well said, Chris.

Very well portrayed and descriptive with the stabbing bite of injustice sewn between the lines. Good writing.
