one day


the sky will be a mushroom of blue butterfly wings

the ground will be tallowed with yellow pollen

the trees will be needled with green & pines


the streets will be lively with music

the buildings will be festooned with flags & kites

the church bells will peal with gladness


you will sing again with nightingales

dancing in your yellow skirts & teal hat

relish the family meal of beet soup with garlic bread


i will tally the days with light lamp

and jelly beans in my jar

keeping faith


the sun will keel the broken sails

and rise above the long shadows of grief, dust & dire


dappled light,

at the end of this tunnel, awaits you


Artist:   Vika Muse


“Freedom” – 
This artwork was made due to the hope, that we have the light at the end and the name of this light – is the Victory. That we will survive and rebuild our country.
