In Response to Imaginary Garden With Real Toads ~ Sunday's Mini-Challenge: September Sky ~ Still the War Goes On ~
Islamabad The Beautiful
In 1965 on the 6th of September Pakistan was attacked by India-That war ended after 17 days. Another kind of war 'Zarb e Azb' (The Cutting Blow ) is now going on against Terrorism- It is 2014 Still the War Goes On...War and Death in September 2001- Still the War Goes On...
September Sky dolefully darkens as mystic vapors rise, seems to call O' Underworld receive Persephone She comes to be with husband Hades.
Changing colors changing breezea whiff of heat for trembling leaveslast of the blossoms before the Fallevery year,trees cry as greens cease
The 6th of September came again
and brought memories of war blasts and fights
in black outs courage prevailed as fears
grew everyday a front opened, new-
each day brought a fresh death
young and tender with a soft
breath' cooled!a formless form-
when nothing was gained from the destructive
storm thrown blown and shown around;
all that was Holy stately and grand
in an instant brought to the ground;
Memories remain of
a love lost
a shattered dream
a silent scream
And the War goes on....
And bodies fall And so do the leaves
And so do the trees
And so many tears
And September Calls.....
Who is being fooled......Who is being ruled
Who is hiding and law abiding
Who is lost and who is found;
I wonder who is the victor And when will be the last round?
