A dream-killer

Updated on June 20, 2013

You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep spring from coming.

Pablo Neruda

A dove
in the middle of a rectangle
with two stars in red sparkling on the sides
in the kite
A strong cold wind from Siberia
all of a sudden,
cutting the string,
taking the image,
the dream
to unknown destination
The sudden urge to run and chase
Smiling through cracked lips,
The birds screamed above,and the girl screamed back
Harsh, cruel- of pain? Of loss?
Big hands
in black gloves
sneaked up behind
closed-up like a noose around the neck
pressed the throat,tiny smooth like of gentle vine
So fragile, delicate, yet irrevocably straight
A tightened grip, no whimper nor sound
Roses bloomed on her cheeks,
Lovely, so lovely
She grew swollen,
exploded florals
on the land that was in stark need of spring.

      Oh Cutest Cat,

      Thanks so much for the input.The art of conversation is the art of hearing as well as of being heard.You are an appreciative listener.When you listen,you listen without bias .I come to this conclusion after we discussed many issues together.We differed in some (like the benefits of carrot jk )and we agreed upon some others(Sorry I dont remember any right now but I am sure many to mention lol )

      Let me quote Augsburger :

      Being heard

      is so close to being loved

      that for the average person,

      they are almost indistinguishable.

      Have a nice weekend there!

      Oh this words are so tragic and so needed! How you can write about something that it so horrific but make it beautiful has continued to leave me amazed. I hear you James... and I hope others do as well.

      Hi James, I wrote a Hub about Syria, and was disappointed that it had the lowest number of comments of any of my Hubs! I must update it, but the stats are so discouraging and awful that I am almost afraid to look at them. I think of all those displaced and wounded families, and it makes me feel so sad.

      We have nothing but hopes. You know like the rest of us know that the Syrian mess is unique of its kind. Russia and China are blocking any effecient international action , Iran and Hezbullah are fighting on the ground and compensating Bashar's loss of logestic and soldiers, Nato intervension is not on the tabler for some reason.USA reluctant to interfere ,no oil there and afraid to be eaten by what it calls Rebels (the freedom fighters) after ousting the Assad s regime in the future.It seems a vicious circle.

      My question is : how long can Bashar rule a country ( if he succeeds to curb the opposition) burdened with destroyed economics and infrastructure and rioting population and deteriorating army, especially Irani Khamini is opposing more waste of money on Syria?

      I am surprised he stayed in power this long I thought for sure his own men would have done a Brutus to Cesar reenactment. You know that saying if you roam with the sharks don't be surprised if you someday get eaten by them. His father created a vicious regime and I believe some in that vicious regime may turn that viscousness on Bashar. Bashar's father raised a viper to lead Syria and I think that viper may soon loose his head.

      "I am nursing a viper in Rome's bosom. I am educating a Phaethon who will mishandle the fiery sun-chariot and scorch the whole world.'" Tiberius about his nephew Caligula who he choose to succeed him.

      James ... very powerful symbolism.. detailing your passion for events that you can not control.

      asad tale of what the reality of life is .. Birth.. life , death ..regeneration from what is left.

      Awesome poetry my friend.
