In The Air


Sadness in the Air is a poem written by a friend based on the visions he had several months ago.



THERE IS SADNESS IN THE AIR

There is sadness in the air,
It came again TODAY.
Is it from me, inside me, or is it from
OUT THERE?

A Vision:
Of an old woman,
wailing and crying,
amidst the fallen white rubbles of buildings.
Hopeless hands beating bloodied chests
tears flowing unceasingly.
Injured people are groaning from within
While some lay STILL
and breathless.

Sirens blaring from afar,
Drowning the fears of loss and sadness.
People digging for the living,
Whilst from a-distant,
A silent rumble in the earth
Continues to seek
Ever more new victims.

This is a sad poem that I am reposting because the event may seem familiar now although it was written last year.
The title also coincides with the current theme of 'In The Air' in Roses and Stuff.


What else are there in the air...in my garden specifically?
There are some bees in the air.



I can't seem to ignore these bright looking Canna waving to me in the air.

Have a pleasant weekend and do look out for interesting postings of 'In The Air', at Roses and Stuff.

  5. Very moving poem and timely so sad to say. Your images are really beautiful, the water and the bee especially. This is a nice theme this week. I wonder if I repost or list 'Looking Up' from my March GBBD magazine, if that counts. What do ya think?

  10. One, your friend expresses so well what many are feeling. There is sadness in the air and it is difficult sometimes to remain hopeful and optimistic amongst such sadness. And while our hearts break for those suffering the garden is a place that always brings me back to balance and optimism. Have a lovely weekend One.

  15. A very sad poem, but apt for the situation that our brothers and sister in Japan are experiencing now.

    I wonder how much time you spend waiting for insects to land on your flowering plants to get a picture of them. I would definitely want to try that someday.

  16. The Poem: quite prophetic, isn't it?Poetry has a way of capturing the moment. One of my favorite American poets Patricia Smith writes about Katrina (the hurricane) with such power and force in her poetry collection called Blood Dazzeler. Listen to this poem called 34 .

    Your flowers are lovely against the blue sky. We are still grown and dry. I lover your colors and your narratives. cheers. ann

  27. The poem reflects what is happening in Japan today. Really sad. But they are strong people as they have shown in the past and will emerge and bloom like your garden for sure.

  28. what a very thought provoking poem.

    I want to capture a little bee in midflight like that soon now that the bees are out and about on patrol duty in my garden now - plus I just found my continuous shooting button on the camera. Just look at how big a pollen sack he is carrying - what a great photo One.
