       As I sit here this morning, the birds are singing just as they were that day; garbage trucks still roar and clatter; sirens still scream, all just like they did then.

    dotsRemembering 9.11dots

    In ignorance dawned the day .
    Morning birds sang everyday songs,
    full of lilt and promise
    and dew’s kiss still lay on the land.
    Oh, that fog had never lifted
    and humankind remained subject to its pall!

    No planet’s orbit altered that day.
    and the earth continues its spin.
    No suns sputtered and died.
    Leviathans still slip unseen
    beneath the deep sea waters
    and microbial battles still wage.

    Men knew the destruction destined;
    only human hearts bore the hate.
    Holding death in brazen disdain.
    men set fate’s appointment,
    their minds shutting away the horror
    and rejoicing at Hell brought to light.

    The nation grew up that day,
    in smoke and fire and ash.
    No longer a callow maiden
    unbloodied by evil’s dark gore,
    she lay, rudely violated,.
    her tear-filled eyes open now
    to the world’s savage ways.

    Now only memories hear the screams,
    as birds again sing their morning songs.
    Now only hearts left behind
    feel the lingering pain.
    Yet the abasement haunts us
    as we cling to bright images

    and remember.
