Hearts Lifted In Song

Written for:  Sunday Whirl, Wordle #545

Words:  lilt rise, unrelenting, scarce, wicked, sing, 
        free, power, spirit, rubble, homes, explosion

They sing with a lilt,
voices lifted in spirit–
rising, unrelenting– 
to keep their free land free
of wickedness.  Their power,
and sheer guts come from
strong hearts, and belief.
And we hear them
during those scare moments
when homes and people 
are not turning to rubble 
in explosions, orders of
a madman.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
