Picking Purple

Afghan women collect saffron flowers in the Karukh district of Herat, Afghanistan on Nov. 6, 2016.

In mauve lines,

the women stroll,

A calm scene

in battered Afghanistan

 

It speaks

of what could be

The flowers

between waves of hatred

That power struggle

which erodes, destroys, torments

 

Here

small buds of hope

push through

and women stroll
