Tuesday April 19, 2011 NoPoWriMo Day #19

Stepped outside, facing southeast.

NaPoWriMo Day #19

Recounts of the Day
Walk in the garden
A sanctuary
Not meant
As flattery

So much was
Sprouting from
The message
Kill SS and medicare
The Mad Hatter and Alice
Tales of Uncle Remus
New plans
Broken pipes
Reaching its'
The crude clown
The rude Donald
Number one

Recounts of the day
And it was only Monday
Rain against the
Window pane
Watered the garden
A good soak
Silver light
Breaking morn
Serious scars to the
Social safety net
Wrong today
Wrong forever

Hard to smell the
Overwhelming stench
Of what is laid to
Liars and cheats
Bought and paid for
Recounts of the day

From Brenda W's Sunday Wordle.

I love how this reads... and the twist at the end.

Wow, the beautiful peaceful images are at such counterpoint to words of the wrong decisions being made in places of power. Very effective poem, you said it well. Dismay. But then a look at the breaking clouds, and hope and peace restored again. At least we can guard our hearts. But no where to hide our heads, unfortunately. Well done, Annell. "And this is only Monday." I know!

This is only Monday sets a tone that carries throughout. The photos create a balance, a sincere sanctuary. Not an easy read, but one worth every word,
