A Cry of Art

Whose Broken Window is a Cry of Art

Whose name do I speak when thinking of the
Broken, but the brother I lost
Window to his childhood
Is a photograph
A portal for mother and father who
Cry for this young man
Of bravery and beauty – crushed, then separated from the
Art of his life

**

Wondering whose
broken
brother is at the window
She is
a
grieving cry
of
life becoming art.

By June Perkins inspired by Gwendolyn Brooks.

 

Acrostic combined with Golden Shovel poem. 

This one inspired by Boy Breaking Glass
