Left behind as
waste
living on morsels
debased.
When I’m
scrapped, who
cares?

HAIKU POEM
ROSALIENE BACCHUS
They cannot run, they cannot hide        
Or take a journey far and wide              
Driven from their dwelling place
Abandoned by the human race

No battle cry, no mournful sound
Echoes from the earth around
In an age they did not know
Battered lives lay more and more

Fears and compassion slowly die
Like withered leaves beneath the sky
Wandering feet must tread the soil
Where fathers stooped in constant toil

A broken promise, shattered dream
Flowing like a passing stream
Teardrops mingled with the rain
Such vibrant courage will remain

To stand and fight for what is right
Searching for the truth unwanted
Those unloved, yet motivated
To whom are they obligated?

Bound by inseparable darkness
Captives of unbridled madness
Let shadows roam, they long to flee
Liberated---forever free.

Abandonment
Rosalie Turner
SCRAPPED
WORKERS

The excellence of every Art is its intensity.

Poetry should be great and unobtrusive, a thing which enters
into one's soul, and does not startle it or amaze it with itself,
but with its subject.

Poetry should...strike the reader as a wording of his own
highest thoughts, and appear almost a remembrance.

JOHN KEATS, ENGLISH ROMANTIC POET (1795-1821)

PUBLISHED WITH PERMISSION
Rosalie Turner, an
immigrant to the
United States from
Yorkshire, England,
has devoted many
years to art, literature
and travel.  Formerly
a government
employee to the
Forestry Service of
Belize, Central
America, she traveled
to many European
cities and towns,
which became the
focus of her   
language career. As a
team member of a
social work agency in
U.S.A., she became
acutely aware of
ethnic cultures and
diversified groups.
She later hosted her
own radio show
featuring music of
jazz artists, country
singers, and Latin
and Caribbean artists.
With a richly
developed back-
ground in human
affairs, she gained
insight and
understanding of
behavioral problems,
and later commenced
writing poetry, thrillers
and romantic novels.
