8. 20am August 6th 1945
bursting through a blazing blue sky
The Enola Gay flew
With a little boy that blew
If only they knew
The untold damage they were about to askew

It was in the hands of men
No hand of God or Buddha Zen
The course of humankind was set
No human sight or sound could beget
Innocent lives, lovers entwined
Pulverized in a strange synergy
A cauldron of superheated energy
A Blinding flash
A Pulsating mass
In Xray vision
No time for indecision

Atomic Shadows
Atomic Blast
Ripped through the pages of my heart
Melting faces
Bleeding hearts
Bodies ripped to shreds
Lives torn apart
Once a Peaceful uptopia
Now a Nightmarish dystopia

Today I sit and wonder
Is it really peacetime?
Or are we on borrowed time?
In our far away blissful ignorance
We have a choice
To live and let live
To live in peace
To live in love
To look above

    Those atomic shadows are an ominous reminder of how terrifying Nuclear war can be. Your images and words are always thought provoking Annie.

    a sad indictment of the human race
    split the atom and the first use of such technology
    is to kill and destroy
    a horrific and very sad image powerful aswell
