Daily Prompt: Luxurious

What’s the one luxury you can’t live without?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us LUXURY.

St. Niklaus, Feldbrunnen

A view of my village

Is it not luxury enough where there are no wars?
To wake up  in a bed
Not fleeing from your neighbour or a soldier
You have a washing machine
You have a car
You have food on the table
But this is nothing when war is on the streets
When there is no security
There are no cars but tanks
Soldiers patrolling
Controlling everyone and everything
People eating grass
Children dying before they know what a mother is
And we ask what luxury you cannot live without?
Define luxury and I will tell you which one I do not need

  6. This poem definitely resonated with me. Granted, there were a million jokes rolling around in the back of my head, screaming “of course someone living in the most neutral zone of the world would comment on a thing like WAR.” But there is so much truth behind what you’re saying that there’s little room for humor.

    • Thank you for your comment. I grew up in post war London in the East End, my playgrounds were so-called bombsites and my father and all my uncles were in the war. One was at the D-day landings and another five years a prisoner. I have now lived in Switzerland for 46 years and with time you learn a lot about the Swiss and how it is to be “neutral”. No-one is neutral, everyone has their ideas. It is politics that is neutral. My father-in law and his brothers were stationed at the borders in uniform during the last war, not knowing what would happen. It is not easy being neutral, as you say you are the target for all sorts of remarks and thoughts.
