Afghanistan’s Sky

Thursday 13 July 2017, by Lee Kuei-shien, Taiwan

The snow falling on Afghanistan’s land
covers over dirty bloods.
The land explodes to cracking wounds.
The sky has not wept for quite a long time
even Allah has none of a single sigh.
Then, let us go to fly a kit
taking off this sad land
up to heaven.
In Taipei
we even have not a little bit of sky
and can only fly within our mind.
