a day made for us

Wordpress Blogs on Refugees - اثنين, 2014/08/18 - 09:44

to stay inside

 

to contemplate the ark

as the rains come down.

 

the water causes

the usual chaos

blocked gutters, drains,

fallen trees, electricity out,

wind bursts

change direction

the maggies keep hopping

and complaining

poor bedraggled birds.

 

we are inside

bobbing along

the river Cephissus

floating in a dreamboat

towards another world

rain-peace,

 

except

for the flood

the fleeing

the homeless

huddled and unfree

no lady with a lamp

on australia’s fair shores

 

no succour

from the heaving

seas
