Children On The Road


Dust storms in the air, unknown roads unwind
Children standing with stretched hands line up left and right
Vehicles, Lorries scurry to their places
Not one stopping, only throwing gifts to those hands
Clothes dusty from the southerly winds
Grandma shelters a little one from eyes that peer
Vehicles drive on leaving a trail of children on the road
Standing left and right to welcome all

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this poem based on an experience in North Sinai on the 19 December 2013, in Egypt. I saw 50 children or so standing on the road welcoming a convoy of vehicles. This poem is dedicated to those children.
