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. When my gaze returns, my perception changes, questions in my mind foment. Walking to the concert hall, after it’s rained, light […]

Remember Not

Remember Not   ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ I remember when young, one time when I lived in the moment.

Some near, some distant, need a telescope Find what we want or want what we find; spend years so depressed, out of our mind. Will we start to understand which is […]

Damaged Earth, Damaged Sky ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Why would I want to go that way, knowing where it will likely lead?
