Mournful melodies

Porcelain fingers
pluck china strings
the ceramic harp sings
a requiem of
treble disaster
in a world out of key
nature’s jarring orchestra
discordant melody
of old catastrophe
balm of music
on scars of history
clogged lungs respire
a dirge of death
tremors of recollection
flood of memory
horrors of oblivion
