1 of 8 Creative Writing – Poem Titled ‘Paris’ and Schminchke & Liquitex Ink on Cotton A3 297x420mm 300GSM by Karen Robinson 17-11-2015 Copyright Protected.JPG
The Paris multiple attacks where more than 120 people were killed and more than 350 people were injured with about 100 of those seriously – via a series of coordinated terrorist attacks, was shocking news. The tragic loss of loved ones, family, friends and workmates must be unbearable for those directly impacted and for the people of France this needless atrocity must be impossible to fathom.
The amazing resilience of the France people had inspired me to write this very short and simple poem. I have also accompanied it with an ink painting I have created which represents the French flag colours and I have used the now iconic symbol being ‘Peace for Paris’ which has spread around the world. I humbly and respectfully share my words here below.
