Weekly Photo Challenge: Serenity

What I noticed
were the birds:

the heron high
hunched
against a silent sky

so many pigeons, too,
symbols of peace, in view

the scavenging crow
safe to peck ground zero.

What do they know?

    • Thanks, Patti. I’ve wanted to go to Hiroshima since my Dad told me about the bombing as a child. It was an incredibly moving experience to go to there and see the Peace Museum and the Atom Bomb dome and the ruins left as they were from that day. And also how the city was rebuilt: resilience of the human spirit coming out of unimaginable horror and destruction.

    • It is Don – to see modern-day Hiroshima knowing what happened there gives one hope. But then spectres such as ISIL take it away. The world is a mad, mad place, made so by humans.
