National Poetry Month Day Twenty-six

word group: relentless--questions--imminent--brave

On this partly cloudy day
when everything is washed
in gray shadows
the destruction
of our world
is imminent.
The proof lies
     in detonated bombs
     gun slinging teens
     babies shaken
     not stirred with love.
Relentless
to find solutions
I ask brave questions
but the scarcity
of answers
is a deafening silence
and the afternoon
shadows
cloud my brain.
