War

“War” Marc Chagall

 

A glass of wine

Sitting there wondering

What the future will hold

War comes to my mind

And I shiver.

Not possible I want to scream

But the words don’t come out.

War! What’s there to gain?

The innocent will die

For something, they don’t  understand.

It takes two to tango

One who leads and one who follows.

May the right one lead

May the other follow

With peace in mind.

  1. I didn’t think it possible that I’d be even more sober than I’ve been the previous 8 months. Troubling times on top of troubling times. I have never seen this Chagall before and it’s breathtaking. Thank you for your words. Somehow solidarity in thought adds a little comfort.
