The Day Before Yom HaShoah

April 20, 2009 § 5 Comments

holocaustDay 20 of this month of poetry. The prompt is rebirth.

 

 

 

 

We have mourned our losses –
tiers of stacked cord, bins of piled

clothes, worn and bloody soles.

 

We have recovered portions of history –

dairies, photos, Torah, art

remain without the souls that carried them.

 

We have refreshed our spirits.

We have renewed our families.

We have born new hope.

 

But we cannot replace who did not survive.
