This is sad. Just how much families have to put up with external onslaughts can never be imagined. Nicely Loredana!Hank
Its always tragic to see how families are affected by nuclear blasts and atrocities.
This tug at my heart! Nicely done in such few words!
Nicely done ...
broken families,what a sad wrap up.
These shattered glass that is like diamonds in the sky... also those you see when you squint your tearful eyes... that's the image I wanted for my poem too...
sad, and even sadder watching the news these days, where stories of migration and displacement aboundhave a good Sundaymuch love...
Shattering glass and broken families....the world's saddest stories.
this flows so freely and encompasses an issue all to real, especially for small children whose innocence is usually shattered as well.
So sad, and so descriptive. Well done.
You covered the subject well. :-(ZQ
I think I feel these images the deepest when whole families are shattered...
Oh, the (revelatory) ending made me wince with pain.
Those shards of glass once clear panes with a vie to the future broken as the family is too with scars that will last many years. Emotive but effecting writing.
The parallels drawn between broken glass and broken families is really striking! So much said in few words.
The concise and so very carefully chosen words convey an image and a feeling that does indeed cut through the soul
Ah...this last line...unexpected....great metaphor though.
So full of truth...
That last line makes the metaphor seem so real.
Sad when leaves fall, but still, a wonderful view.
