From one small window I watch
For ships or planes
I watch for intruders
For an enemy I donít know

From the sky they could come
Or from the waters that are deceptively calm
But can smash cliff walls and fishing boats
With the anger of relentless waves

I watch silently from my perch above the sea
And only see beauty before me
I hear peace
I hear no planes
I see no ships

Families were moved from their islands
And placed far away to a home that is no home
I wonder if the elders are eating
And I wonder if the children cry at night
Sometimes, when I lie in the dark, I hear their sorrow

I wonder as I wait and watch
From this small window
For ships or planes

And I am homesick
I just want to go home

Dear Alison, this was a very sensitive, poignant write and it feels really strange that back then when you posted it, it faded away without a comment!

The coasts of the world show these sad signs of a time of war and all that it brought with it. Your window ponderings didn't fail to touch me deeply.

Love,
Margherita
