#310 of 365 – “thirst in the mountains”

“thirst in the mountains”

 

clear

from the filter

I have

an easy glass

of water

stepping

over drops

that have landed

on the floor

I couldn’t

watch

the children

dying

of thirst

in the mountains

anymore

    A powerful message brilliantly conceived and executed…and so, so tragic.
