Bomb Shelter Poetry

Today I’m working on poetry. Also a story. Here’s the poem.

 

Bomb Shelter

m_kobe_detail

There once was a boy

Who lived in a bomb shelter

In the middle of his father’s hometown.

One day Dad was out

The boy heard planes in the sky

And the bombs fell down and down.

 

No chance for escape

The boy crawled under his bed

Crying softly and tightly curled

The song of each bomb

The thunder of gods

The sound of the end of the world.

 

When at last it was done

Shaking and bruised

The boy crawled out from his hole

And though the bombs they had stopped

The shadows they dropped

Would remain forever upon his soul.

 

No Dad

And no town

No life to be found,

The boy from the bomb shelter

 

Was alone.
