February Mornings by Glenda Higgins

People who don’t forget

Their pain

On buses

Traveling through the rain

 

On February mornings

Anger at injustices

That sucked the soul dry

And spit out the hulk

 

To travel on buses

And cry out in pain

On February mornings

In the rain

 

Tortured by the memory

Shown a cruel fate

Unable to recover

From the blood on his plate

 

The man in tattered clothes

Looking out the window

At another time

That still whispers in his mind

 

Snatched from his family hearth

And made to wear a gun

Before his life had run

Its tender course

About the Author 

Glenda spent her early work in libraries – ten years in various positions, including cataloguing, which launched her on a favorite pastime of reading everything under the sun.

 Her start as a poet surprised her. She took a poetry-writing course. Two hundred poems wrote themselves in a furious manner, in two weeks.  This led to performing poetry in cafes and on the radio and about three hundred more poems.
