Before College: The Day After

The Day After

A haunted wind moans softly through the trees
Its arms aware of new asymmetries,
The sea as if afraid hugs tight the shore
For missing are the victories of war.
With dusk, a fragment moon shines overhead,
No history, both time and men are dead.

Since Merov gave me a 1.0 rating I am interpreting that as the highest possible praise and have awarded this poem a permanent 10.0 that no one can touch.
Short but very revealing. Indeed the negative impacts of war to humanity cannot be overestimated. How could we live in a world full of atrocities and fear. There will surely be a better day in the future. Another masterpiece from the talented poet..... well done!
