DICHOTOMY
by Maris B. Mohr


gray dawn rises
mourning minds and hearts
set out to face
the generations lost to
protect and defend
orphans, lovers, parents
left with emptiness to
fill their lives

hours of remembrance
years of longing for
young lives cut short
erased from the realm of
life and the living
fade into dusk

darkness brings starlight
seconds of confusion, shock
sadness melds with celebration
fireworks set the skies ablaze
multi-colored lightning and comets
rain down
smiles return to faces
light to hearts
for the moment
