Erasing the Line

A chalk line is drawn

across ragged asphalt.

Whose side are you on

shouts the schoolyard bully.

As one finger points out

three fingers point back.

We are all to blame,

but none will confess.

Words, words, words,

written, shouted, unspoken, accused,

do little to heal.

Our words, underground currents

of water, control the rise and fall

of tides that were and will be.

But those fingers who point;

Oh how they hold the power,

power to heal, to edify, to unify.

Tears do not soothe

the question of the schoolyard bully

as it taunts my soul.

I dig to the deepest of my native recesses

to the ancestral wisdom beneath

thrown stones and petrified sticks.

The ancient fires slowly burn

 from my toes to my heart.

 The answer quietly quivers

in my throat…Humanity stands upright

as it hits the air, hand extended.

Closing the Chasm

bridges and nature 044

Bridges cross divides,

 joining worlds once set apart,

making dreams come true.

Open hearts and hands

build bridges across the world;

help make dreams come true.

Query

The end of the line or is it the beginning of a peace to come?

The end of the line
or is it the beginning
of a peace to come?

Meditation

The shrill of birdsong cascades from treetops, chanting a sacred prayer.

The shrill of birdsong
cascades from treetops, chanting
a sacred prayer.

Be The Peace

Roots that hold you up,

arms that stretch across divides,

a heart that unites

those once divided

is such as a tree of life

in this world of ours.

Reflections of love

Touch hearts as they light the world

In a bath of peace

On the path of peace

Gentle waters caress the soul

Bathing life in love
