Robert's Wednesday Prompt -about a group


Looking back over their shoulders,
for shadows in the wood, hiding
scars, scanning horizon for snipers,
Survivors counting days, finding
patterns, deciphering signals,
whispering secrets, silencing
nightmares, pulling weeds,
not planting seeds, hiding tears,
fearing yesterday, tomorrow,
unsure if thriving is possible.

  1. This is an interesting poem, Victoria. I am trying to figure out which survivors you are writing about. Holocaust survivors. Survivors of a terrorist bombing. Survivors in general of a personal tragedy. Your poem has me thinking.
