What I Said

What I Said ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Mired in my mind maze, lonely and lost, as I wander around inside my own head. Wise words I uttered, at too high a cost, because, I cannot remember what I said. ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is […]

And Then I Know

And Then I Know ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ I, one evening, going out to a recital, look away from my life, a brief moment.

Life and Time ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Life is trying, trying to stretch me, stretch me thin. Extenuated tries, treasons, lies, reasons, death and life, sorrow trouble borrowed double. Tears flow, falling like rain, striking, splashing, battering, splattering. Ripples spreading, intersecting. No respite, no recrimination, […]
