Sunday Whirl: Wordle 545

Unimaginable Ukraine

Amidst the rubble after the war
The explosions are felt ‘round the world
The power of one is evil by far
While his wicked ways become unfurled

Homes are now scarce as spirits decline
The free world is far from the norm
The people will sit while bombs sing and whine
Like the deadliest part of the storm

An unrelenting battle goes on
As tears rise all ‘round the globe
The lilt and swagger now is far gone
While the search for the dead is the probe

What do you see?

When I look into the distance

When I look into the distance 
I see you walking 
with someone new 
without me 
smiling 
laughing 

When I look into the distance  
I do not see us together 
I am alone 
without you 
frowning 
crying 

When I look into the distance 
my hopes for tomorrow 
are as far away 
as you are

Poetry for today

I’m trying to call you 

When I tried to call you  
 
There was no answer back  
 
For you live in heaven  
 
My world is dark and black.  
 
 
 
I can’t see you here now 
 
Your spirit is not seen  
 
I know you are here though  
 
Your love is what I mean.  
 
 
 
When you left you forgot  
 
To say goodbye to me  
 
And now my heart is broke 
 
Is this how life will be?  
 
 
 
You left me alone here  
 
Without you I am blue  
 
I will see you again  
 
For that I know is true.
