Poem – 13 Years – 9/11

13 Years


An arctic sunrise opens this day –
cold, calm, and reflective.

The sky burns today but
not the way it did 13 years ago.

Scattered across the deep blue
colors from every palette

converge and blend, overlapping,
without boundaries, without hate.


At the edge splitting
humanity we gather

and watch 2977 people
hold hands and become one.
