A Time of reflection

A Time of reflection
By Pauline Harris

A man stood by
Greeting many
Who held tears
In their hearts
As a friend passed away
Shots in the distance
From those who aim
And want to scare
And state their voice
Silently others scream
Mostly in dismay
For threats had put
Them in the corner
Out of sight
Out of thought
One man continues on
He tells of what he recalls
But the loss is greater
For the quiet mourner
As she heard how little
He valued some rights
While boasting his views
In a life taken long ago
Justified or not, the life is gone
Another said she fought hard
To keep her head held high
While others gathered roses
And photos of days gone by
Humble servitude as guide
Cries in aches we must hide
Choices we bare as we share
Shots bring memories
Distant lives cry in hurts
Mumbled views need reflection
Silently a moment to rest
As life continues each step
Soon the joys return
And the sleepy may rest
But still the rings of shots
Echo, echo in the hearts of all
Whether to boast or reflect
Whose freedom is gained
If a life is taken too soon

Welcome! This infinitesimal corner of the web is a place where my fairy tales, poems, and images collect and remind me of where I've been. Enjoy and feel free to comment on your parallel existence! Peter Ellis

Faith is like looking through the viewfinder of a camera; it helps us see differently.
