The World Without.....

Day 28 April P-A-D prompt from Poetic Asides:  "The world without something"  My response for today is a few senyrus.


The world without you

would have no meaning for me

my beautiful sons


**********


Without tornadoes

Alabama would not know

such devastation



our hearts and our minds

stop mundane meanderings

to send prayers of hope


**********


This world without love

would be a nightmare beyond

imagination

  1. All good, but the first one tops the bill. I'm sure the feeling is mutual.

  4. All of them are thoughtful and immediate. Love the first one though, close to heart.

  8. Gloria, Hi I just had to comment here. Your first poem is very beautiful, as a Mom I know what it means.
    The second grabbed my attention, these storms are terrible, and I'm glad you didn't take a "silver lining" approach. These is no way to make a positive spin from the destructiveness of these storms is there?

    Although like all disasters, we humans find our ability to bounce back and rebuild.

    Your third poem is very true.
