'Wishing For A Firefly'
©2001 Carol J. Phipps

This collage reflects meditation and lamentation on the experience of terrorism against America occurring on September 11, 2001.

No amount of wishing could erase the fiery truth.

One September Eleventh
Hopes Walked Sleepless
Shock and Anger Labored
‘Selfish-lessly’ side by side;
One Nation Under God
Wrangled reverent!
Working ‘tired-lessly’;
Hoping, for a sign,
Some sign of life
In wreckage two towers deep.

Medium: Torn paper
