Quieted

Photo taken 09/12/2001 Ground Zero


Three thousands miles west
I sit by the San Diego Bay
Amazed reflective praising

The sky's singular day of silence
No savoring peace
Pain
Draped in ash
Stress
A combustion of lives

Silence sans seabirds
Escorting victims home
Not one engine lends its voice
Ashamed by the fallen
Temporary slumber

History's loss list grows longer
Man once again proves
Primitive animal behavior

Will all rational thought be forced to expire?
