people’s shadows, crushed into the ground,

the dark abyss of humanity’s soul –

revealed by an act –  unspeakable,  foul

    • Hi Mark – when I was a young girl, my Dad told us about the shadows left behind after the atom bombs were dropped on Japan and it’s something I’ve never forgotten. Thank you for reading this post. bb
