Watching From The Window

by Ellespeth

Nimrud Ivory – Woman at the Window

Watching From The Window

She is watching
from the window crying
soaking the earth with grief

We will create
a new civilization
a dreamscape
blooming from a nightmare;
a garden set among the stars.
Don’t give up!
It is far more courageous to create
than it is to destroy.
