Away from a War Zone
by R. D. Ashby
Bookmark and Share
  War is restricted to the news
here in my quiet life,
where the summer grass still weaves a spell,
the orange Frisbee flies;
a little girl with headguard on her bike
perfectly balanced
in the avenue of massive trees;
a compact of young people
under the spell of a singer on a platform;
pet dogs straying,
then racing back over the easy distances.
Houses in the street seem empty,
at peace,
the dimensions of war and strife
a flickering
in corners of front rooms.
