Poem of the Week–Differences

Differences

Don’t divide the people, we insist…
There is a way, to peacefully coexist.
But still I see two sides concerning this.
What is power up to will they tell?

As mountain peaks await the sunset bell
and darkness captures either side of dawn
the sun appears alternatively gone;
night and day change sides and disappear
for us to follow, in our wake of fear.

  1. What a thought-provoking poem. Life does depend on what side of the bayonet one is on, doesn’t it? and the need is so necessary to keep trying for peace to be on both sides. Sophie, your poem says so much and using nature as pivots is so effective. This is a poem I am anxious to share. Thank you so very much. Lois
