Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 (Out of The Innocent Sky)

MH17

On the first day of our family vacation we heard the news of Flight MH17 being blown out of the sky over Ukraine... For the next day I conjured the tragedy in my head and as I often do I wrestled with words and rhyme...

Out of the innocent sky

Out of the deepest blue

Out of their loving arms

Out of the can’t be true

Out of the graceless soul

Out of the heart’s deceit

Out of the one eyed mind

Out of the patriot’s conceit

Out of the schemes of hell

Out of God’s silent sigh

Out of the wheat and weeds

Out of the innocent sky.
