remembering the cure

when we reflect on how it was
years from now when we are safe
will we remember kindness flowed
it is my hope we do, because
we learned a precious lesson then
when nature had her way with us
our differences tossed to the wind
ashes to the ashes, dust to dust
when sorrow gripped the human race
will we remember kindness flowed
when souls were cured through acts of love


Magic 11 poem – my variation on the Magic 9 poem, a 9-line poem that doesn’t have any rules as far as meter or subject matter–just a rhyme scheme: abacadaba. Enter the Magic 11 abracadabra poem with the r’s intact, placeholders for a refrain. Rhyme scheme: abRacadabRa. (R for the refrain).
