Love is All

Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ……… Love is All ~~ Ancient before time, impenetrable void waited. Crawled from its atomic shell; instantaneous illumination flared. Newborn this moment. A swirling figure moves, is every moment. Innocently wise, hopeful, in constant conflict. Cooperation in every interchange. Full of wonder, every […]

Dark as Distance

  ~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ……… Dark as Distance So softly now, we whisper Walk along a clifftop path Sun or stars, day or night We chat, calm, confident In the touch, the strength Of holding another’s hand We discover an open gate Stairs, we slowly […]

Nor Does It

   ~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ……… Nor Does It  ~ When every action taken, Word spoken, song sung, Picture painted or snapped Dance choreographed, performed Structure designed, built, Torn down, replaced, Left to nature, Music composed, Tale written, told, Every moment Remembered or lost, In deeps […]

At Times

At Times I have written many things Some of them are quite silly Occasionally, I wax profound But the timing is willy-nilly

Don’t Push

Ever ~ Philip Brent ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment Hide in deep holes, darkest shadow Dance and preen in bright daylight Neither guarantee, lead high or low You have no reason to feel uptight Plow deeply, with all your might Make use of everything you know Cosmos […]

Lift My Lamp Beside the Golden Door

In 1883, Emma Lazarus, daughter of immigrant families, wrote a sonnet entitled “The New Colossus.” You almost certainly know part of it. It’s emblazoned on a plaque which now resides in the museum of the Statue of Liberty. Perhaps, unlike me, you knew the complete verse. I must admit to being surprised when I learned […]
