Green trees, sandy deserts,
flowery gardens outside the houses
with men and women laughing
and playing with their sons and daughters.
Then blood drenches everything,
turning pink as it stains the tree trunks,
the orange-tinted flower petals,
the crystals of sand,
the dirty hands of the soldiers,
the children’s bare feet.
War changes everything.
