Let Our Hearts Fly “Let Our Hearts Fly”, poem and image © B.E. Kazmarski My heart is heavy with the news of the school shooting today. I’ve used my creative efforts in a poem and image. May we remember the innocent children, the adults who tried to protect them, and the families they leave behind. Let Our Hearts Fly A cardinal flashing red in the bare winter landscape innocent of my intent I missed my shot, my camera open to receive too much light yet it was then that I heard of the shooting of other innocent birds on this brilliant morning colorful plumage melodic chatter gathered in a trusted place a flash of red too many left behind others holding hands closing eyes to run. No. Please let it not be so. For those who can no longer fly let our hearts fly to be with them flashing red in the brilliant and bare winter morning. Poem © B.E.
