TOPIC: Sextets for War Victims

A sextet is a group of six. You may write poems composed of six lines on the ongoing conflicts worldwide, including Ukraine and the Rohingya genocide among others. To start the conversation, I share my sextet.

War Child

we are unaware of our standing

when your smile is silent,

such silence is bitter as wormwood

and deeper than dark woods.

how can we save the spirit

of your beauty without you?
