It Is Time

~~~~~ It is a time of great hope. It is a time of great fear. It is a time of lies It is a time of truth. How do we gentle harsh lies, hatespeak? For we must not think to conquer it. When evil seeks to frighten and divide, agitating those who feel marginal, forgotten, […]

Three X Six X How

~~~~~ Surrounded by silence Within the cacophony we create, How can we hear the bee is absent? Overwhelmed by visual images, Created to distract us, drive us mad, How can we see there are no birds on the wing? Paved in hot tar, smothered by concrete, Lost in dark, city mazes, our own creation, How […]


~~~~~ Remember what brought us here. Recall what carried us, harried us, Sent us to strange, distant territory, New frontiers, complex challenges. What do you think this may mean? Do you think it means something? Can you remember who you were, Before being the you, you are now? Plants and prey played their parts. The […]

Another Conversation

~~~~~ So what, if someone knows your name, If they have no idea who you might be? You might be king or queen of the world, And they could walk by you on the street. When you were laid-out, dead and gone, They would not ever, even remember you, Except. Perhaps, to say, “Oh, yeah, […]

Not As Ourselves

~~~~~ What rituals do we retain from ancient times? Primordial, primitive, leaving faint trace, no memory. When each morning the sun rising was pure magic, The setting called forth darkness, a time of fear. We have misplaced the magic, retained our night terror. Magic not lost entirely, yet glimpsed now only in our creation From […]

Freely Given

~~~~~ Start singing the song of simplicity. Continuously chant the canticle of caring. Find foolishness and follow it freely. Play until you are not pretending. Each from the level of their talents Freely given in an act of common creation. Each to the level of their needs. Empathy empowered, not socialism, survival. ~~~~~ Peace is […]

In Their Stupidity

~~~~~ Men, In their stupidity, try to control women. It is not merely power and sex, but fear, jealousy. What they have done and we have allowed, is a sin. Women as equals, would better the world, you’d see. ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Please, leave […]

They Might Grow Up

~~~~~ Emergency, emergency, everybody to clear the streets, The cowboys are coming, the cowboys are coming. Come on, people, get a grip, let us have our say. What we’ll put forth, here, is the American way. Guns toted openly, on a hip, hidden under arm, You know it’s only the bad folks they will harm. […]

Children’s Laughter

~~~~~ Make not my coffin of wood,. Neither stone nor metal either. Make the sides of living trees. Make the bottom of rich earth, So my body becomes new life. Make the cover of protean sky, Where I’ll feel sun and seasons. Weave not my shroud of cotton, Neither silk nor cambric either. Wind me […]

And Beyond

~~~~~ John Donne wrote No man is an island, As we live separate, Alone within our heads. Unable to comprehend The connection between All matter and energy, us, Our universe and beyond. ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Please, leave a comment and let me know what […]
