Shock by Pat Garcia

Shock shook the earth. At first, only tiny tremors, Politicians had ignored them. The media had made fun, Expounding their ignorance. But, the tremors became stronger. — What happened?

Missing by Pat Garcia

                Some things get lost. Some simply misplaced. Some disappear into thin air, Only to reappear at the yard sale, Where items collected have been brought, And the number of years, Spent in one city, One house, One family, Become a fading nostalgic memory of what used to …

A Somewhat Other Mother’s Day by Pat Garcia

Two Thousand One, War on Planet Earth began, Step by step, Country by country, From east to west, And north to south, Culture fighting culture, Tradition struggling tradition, Religion prodding religion, Race killing race, Nationality prevaricating nationality, Men predating women, Power strangling, Dictators glorified, Women pained, Children borne, Bombs blasted in the air, People died. …
