9/11 POEM

My consistent readers,

I first published this poem on my blog last year on 9/11.

I wanted to revisit the memory burned in my mind that fateful day ten years ago.

JUMPERS

They were like birds flying,
Leaping from flaming windows,
No wings to purchase air,
No hope of flying home.

They were like birds flying,
Tumbling in twos, alone,
Flashing by in a smoke-filled sky
While crowds watched in horror.

They were like birds flying
Flights, imprinting the nation’s memory.
They were like birds flying,
Carrying us into a world of fear.
