waiting…

waiting

i waited patiently
by the city gates
for your return
after the revolution
but
you did not
come
briefly
i thought
i saw you
near castro
as he spoke
to us
that evening
so
many years ago
but
it was
a mere apparition
gone
all too soon
and all through
the special period
i waited
for you
patiently
but
you did not
return
even now
as my patience
goes as old
as i
i hold onto hope
that you shall come
to me
oh
sweet dove
of lasting peace
and
understanding

  1. Yes, the only man who could have truly kept the revolution on target was, the great Che Guevara.

    Indeed, he was a turtle dove, a sweet, loving dove, who gave his life for the holy cause of truth, justice and peace.

  2. What a stunning photo. Do you have connections to Cuba? When walls have fallen around the world and we seem to have no trouble doing business with Communist China, I am having a hard time figuring out the stubbornness of this wall. Do you know why it has persisted?

  3. First thought before reading a single word today, Cuba. Charles, a well thought moment in documentary photography, the photograph brings a reader right in close, close enough to listen to every word spoken, shared.
