Whispers
granular messengers
dancing on seemingly ephemeral platforms
amid pacified souls.

Traveling
fervently searching
forever listening
for the archaic sound of triumph.

The forgotten waves
displaced, consumed, destroyed,
by the hands of Time -
of Chaos.

The ringing
(though fescennine to those
whose ambitions remain placid)
still echoes,
whispering of past glory


The author's comments:
This piece was inspired by the bittersweet stories of the Iraqi refugees I met a while ago. All of their stories, though extremely sad, had proud undertones. Each person would talk about the destruction that had torn their country apart, yes - but they preferred to talk about their country's greatness, and their personal ambitions for the future. I really admire their hope.
