Tectonic Shift

Voices gain volume
numbers explode,
paradigm shift dawns.

Breeze gathers force
waters churn,
tsunami rolls in.

Murder abhorrent
eclipses pandemic,
births needed polemic.

Privilege unmasked
blinders torn asunder,
we will change.

    Words and photo are a good match. Each stanza is like a crashing wave.

    We’ll see… Very nicely done, Lillian, so much clarity here, even with the chaotic subject matter.

    The perfect title for this poem, Lill, which shifts from stanza to stanza, as someone else said, like waves. The whole world is shifting at the moment. The final stanza is powerful.

    I am getting a few themes as I had a moment to read what other have written, likewise here and thank you for this, going in the theme of hope & “Change, we have had enough, we are hopeful, we are strong and we will overcome”! The other theme I thus far found was of sun and heat, oh how I do love summer!

    Very powerful close Lillian! Positively yes, we will change! Privileges enjoyed and accruing must be the same!
