Peace for the Soul

A common space for harmonic peacemakers

it’s 3:23 in the morning
and I’m awake
because my great great grandchildren
won’t let me sleep
my great great grandchildren
ask me in dreams
what did you do while the planet was plundered?...
what did you do when the earth was unraveling?

surely you did something
when the seasons started failing?

as the mammals, reptiles, birds were all dying?

did you fill the streets with protest
when democracy was stolen?

what did you do
once
you
knew?

~ from Hieroglyphic Stairway by Drew Dellinger

more than protest is to vote with every breath we take.. make asperation count because we are not ineffective when we develop our inner resources..
