For Manchester

Time is fleeting
Last moments remembered
What we shared 
Seems so distant and forgone
Who were we then?
Screams of joy
Now screams of pain
Where were the signs
That this moment
Would be our last
Were prayers to God heard
Were souls saved                              
Was love found
In the dust and rubble
Did you hold your breath            
Did you exhale
The clock has spun 
Around and Around
Who can tell the time now
Such a fleeting thing
Who knows when?

For the fallen ones

Dance of the palm tree

Graceful with a gentle sway
The wind caresses - a light breeze blows

Elongated, stretching towards the sky
She dances

Poised in perfect form
The gathering of one, two, three
Down the lane, join in

Up and down, side to side
To and fro they go
Like ballet dancers twirl
On tippy tippy toes
All in a row.

Demi-pointe to pliƩ
Swan-like perfection,
Palm after palm
Raise in salutation

The envy among the trees.
