The Silent Scream

How gentle

the child, his body

rocking in the surf.

How gentle, his father’s


How gentle he lifts

his son

from the ocean.

This poem is from a gripping picture taken by Nilufer Demir who discovered the child after the boat he and other refugees were in, capsized off the coast of Turkey.
