! SONG OF AUGUST! Poem by Rema Prasanaa


August tunes and replays

a tearful song from the heart

of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

and monsoon droplets

resonate that heartfelt song

on the strings of August.......

    A powerful poem. I like the fact that you present it in one-line stanzas. That is a brave approach as it puts greater scrutiny on the words. As it is this works perfect and brings to my mind the great Japanese poet Takamura Kotaro. That, my friend, is a complement. (Report) Reply

    People don't even have time to think of the innocent victims of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. People are more concerned about destructive provocation through refined politeness. Peace is a far reach cry. A good reminder of August..10
