Of Migrants Hopes and Dreams

Ten Haikus

Of Migrants Hopes and Dreams
                              Ten Haikus
 
Impenetrable
Steep wall the keep fortified
Raised bridge over moats
 
Seven seas across
Makeshift boats migrants paddle
Lighthouses unlit
 
Seven continents
Dark treacherous trek terrain
Dreams hopes fading fast
 
Driven out from homes
Refugees raped tortured killed
Stripped dehumanized
 
Inhumanity
Seven seas and continents
To mankind prevails
 
Across seven seas
And seven continents there
Is as always hope
 
Always there is hope
From the bowels of the cave
Haunting songs of love
 
From the bosom of
Mother Earth springs forth the truth
Womb pregnant with  faith
 
A prism of love dwells
Amidst ambivalent homes
Compassion walked in
 
Drawbridges seen down
One by one lighthouses lit
Hopes dreams borne again
