Ukrainians we, or: Survival as one

A heart-felt composition and great presentation!

Survival as one …. by David

The Skeptic's Kaddish 🇮🇱

A collection of ‘lanturnes’

we
sing of
our nation’s
survival as
one
one
people
united
against Russian
rape
rape
our land
violate
our existence
force
force
shall not
triumph here
on our forebears’
land
land
sustains
the culture
of ancestors
home
home
demands
commitment
on all our parts
now
now
our troops
must withstand
this disastrous
war
war
was waged
upon us
still we remain
free
free
to live
without fear
Ukrainians
we


#TankaTuesday

This collections of lanturne poems was written as an ekphrastic response to the image below, which I offered to Colleen Chesebro for her weekly Tanka Tuesday syllabic poetry prompt.
