A FOREST OF TEN

DEMONS

 

Type: Poem (Dedicated to the wild)

 

Thick trees in threes, wild flowers spring--

Nine fruits in each, so sweet, it kills.

No life, no breathe, nothing can live,

Only some ten who stare and deal.

Faces in white, no legs nor limbs_

Demons at last, who stare and deal.

 

Forest of awe, championed by ten--

Run while they chant- vultures for meals!

Tick-tock, Chick-chock, slowly they match__

Who then will come-- so they can catch?

Spirits who stare when mortals dare_

No shadows found, except for skulls.

 

A forest of ten demons!

 

WHISTLES OF WAR 


At the eclipse of two souls, blood drips like rain drops"Piiii!" It's a whistle call for Ukraine and RussiaA poor cry here and a loud scream thereRivers flowed from Eden's best, only to water what oceans could not wetterUkraine here and Russia thereVladimir and her eyes were painted in red with anguish and anger clouding her nestsThe pen of Taras Shevchenko locked up her fears in the city of KyivWith affairs in tears, the dares are theirsAt the eclipse of two souls, blood drips like rain drops
A little 'boom' in Siberia and a little 'bam' in Chernihiv,No ears can belittle the little sounds of these clapsClaps of thunder mocking the fate of little childrenSounds of bazooka, bullets and steps of fallen knees vibrating the guts of the agedTrembling broken bones swallowed by dirt and death while the world only watched,As laughter was snubbed in the streets of every city with the shouts of "No!" and "Alas!"'Horror' was the word an old babushka said before she breath her last
