HOMELAND (Батьківщина)

HOMELAND (Батьківщина)

barely dawn

his wife wails his name

   anguish in the echo

his babies cry

   tiny arms outstretched

   pleading

his mother

   gray wisps shrouding her face

   drips silent tears

but his other mother

   his homeland

   calls for him too

he walks away

he cannot look back

bloody work to be done
