April Poem #7

Women queued up to vote
Gather in great numbers despite
Threats from Taliban

Yes, they can!

Draped in hooded burkas, black,
Blue and muted colors
Courageous, collective stand

Yes, they can!

Like large birds, getting ready to fly
Voting in their own land
Women of Afghanistan

Yes, you can!!
