An Ordinary Day, Sept. 11

It was an ordinary day,

under

ordinary

skies,

When ordinary planes morphed into missiles

And pierced invisible borders,

And human hearts.

It was an ordinary day,

under

ordinary

skies,

When ordinary planes morphed into missiles

And divided time

Between Before and After.

And now, ordinary days exist no more.

  1. Lis, it’s impossible for me to say I “like” any remembrance like this of such a horrible, tragic day. You know what I mean? But I am amazed by it, as your writing usually amazes me. I ditto what Cathy wrote. “Haunting” is an especially apt response. Thank you for sharing your memory of a day that will truly live in infamy.
