Two Cats

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! Two Cats ~ Philip Brent Harris ~~~~~ I saw two cats sleeping out in a field. One was black and the other ginger. Their only comfort seemed each other. Feral, no doubt; it made me feel sad. The best I could do, take their picture. ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, […]

Between the Atoms

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ Every grain of sand that pings the glass. Every blood-drop shed may be your last. Every breath shared has history and time.

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! Ducks in A Row ~ Philip Brent Harris ~~~~~ Does your life feel like a Mobius strip, an infinitely endless high wire? Never getting anywhere, still you trip. Or like a spiral, going lower, climbing higher? Perhaps the spiral of a hypnotist’s disc? Do you fall off one watching […]

In This Instant

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! Where Breath Becomes Air ~ Philip Brent Harris ~~~~~ Wherever humans have been, there has been war. In this instant, there is time to change how we are. Wherever humans have been, there has been peace. In this instant, there is time to let all conflict cease. Wherever humans […]
