Massacre Victims

(Conneticut U.S.A. December 2012)

petals from a weeping flower
scattered suddenly…
some adults…mainly children
all linked by the glowing
chain of innocence shot to death…

taken well before their time
into the waiting next life
where there is no more time
now…we mourne them
cut down by a man

who began by killing his mother
then ended by taking his own life
we who look on will never
understand…the killings
came suddenly…like lightening

forking a dark and heavy sky
now… may pure petals
flower in peace…in safety
tears are a stream of jewels…
we wear their memory quietly

as a garland of flowers
fresh…new as a coming day
filling the sky with light
now…they sing with each dawn chorus
beautiful in their heavenly rest…
