Messing About with Paint

Shattered Dreams

It’s National Poetry Month, and with a box of paintings from Afghanistan, the painting ‘Shattered Dreams’ of a guy with his kite caught in the tree came to mind.

Shattered Dreams

A tree

A boy stands

Dust swirls

Fists clenched

Branches whip

Tears stream

Wind whistles

Upturned face

Fabric tears

Shattered dreams

A kite, caught, tattered

Kabul 2004
