A gift of grace: First line in a poem

Note: Re-edit of “Today Lucubration (January 5, 2009)”

We may spare the ground floor, wide open to winds and nature, bare of walls, doors, and windows.

We may spread on the dirt floor a carpet of dry leaves, dry nuts, and dry hay, straw, and chaff; a couple of buckets of fresh water in corners.

The neighboring animals have the tendency to pray a lot in a shelter; most of their prayers are for the kindred spirits.

Animal have acute subconscious: a caged canary sings for the hunter to remind him of its hopeless and unnatural conditions to be ended.

The first line in a poem should be the gift of grace; the remaining lines a proof of skills: only skills are materially rewarded.

Details, describing living details are the art of writers; only when he feels the approach of death should the writer focus on distilling the honey of wisdom.

A liked poem has already conveyed an act of resistance for capturing human dignity.

I read an article on wordpress.com where the roles are reversed between the Palestinians in Gaza and the Zionist State: how the world community and the US and the European Union would respond to a 3-month siege of famine and air strikes if the Palestinians of Gaza had cut off Israel from the world.

In what terms the war would be labeled (genocide, war crime, holocaust…) and how quickly the US would have maneuvered to end the war?

Note:  The death toll of the Palestinians in Gaza, after 13 days of Israel savage genocide, climbed to 700 and 4000 seriously injured.

If we discontinue the martyrs of the first day of bombing on all the Palestinian police posts, then the ratio of babies and children is over 60% of the total number of casualties.

This genocide is mainly targeting the next generations of Palestinians and the Bush Junior excuses are beside the point.
