Burning

what has no good eyes
nor has ears?
a dictator who is and a thing else





it dulls his sense of discerning
right from wrong
hot vain dream

what will he do
now all alone?
turn to a cat and yowl?

Beauty of human nature blooms in the ashes

thunder spirit-storm bellows
above the flame
burning forest of the cities

March snow piles
on the rubbles and ashes
cawing lone crow

  1. No. As you know, Derrick, he never was lone; even now that he is pretty much lone, he is never totally alone! Yet at this point he appears to be, with so many countries against him. As always, I value your comment, Derrick.
