syria-heritage-in-ruins-before-and-after-picturesI wrote this back in the Summer of 2014, heartbroken by the destruction of cites, lives, histories in Syria, sadden by the ultimately futile defense of Homs. Who would have realised that Kharkiv, Mariupol, Kherson, Sumy, and many others would now be following suit in their demolition to rubble, without humanitarian corridors and without the closure of skies. Homage to Homs The city walls will not forgetthe long fought, weary, fighters as they leftWho’d stood so Homs would never fallthrough bombs and blasting one and allTill surrounded, starved, deprived of aidtheir exit finally was made.July 2014© Sheila Ash References for the forgetfull syria-heritage-in-ruins-before-and-afer-pictures  syrian-woman-trapped-home-two-years-blockade-homs syria-conflict-the-silence-in-homs-emphasises-the-citys-fate-theres-barely-a-breath-of-wind (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.5&appId=153011348120046"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));ashramblings
