“We Gathered”    by: Marilyn Griffin

 

We gathered…

all the wood we could find…

We gathered…

all of like mind…

 

We gathered…

strength from each other…

We gathered…

although a blur…

 

We gathered…

as of one kind…

We gathered…

a need to bind…

 

We gathered…

looking all around…

We gathered…

plane had been downed…

 

We gathered…

our wits together…

We gathered…

death claimed abductor…

 

We  gathered…

scanning the sky…

We gathered…

not wanting to die…

 

We gathered…

as one being…

We gathered…

body… heart aching…

 

We gathered …

by the fire…

We gathered…

situation dire…

 

We gathered…

kept holding on…

We gathered…

as day did dawn…

 

We gathered …

as the dead lay round…

We gathered…

hoping to be found

 

We gathered …

as hopes almost fade…

We gathered…

began to pray…

 

We gathered…

our words heard…

We gathered…

something whirred…

 

We gathered…

looking upward…

We gathered…

prayers answered…

 

We gathered…

by dying blaze

We gathered…

Had it been… just two days?…
