blood on our hands - v3


so many towns, locations, moments,
names which we know, staggering,
innocents slaughtered
in halls, classrooms
a raging inferno
Hell here below

blood on our hands
mental health forgotten
in name of freedom
carnage repeating
guns now increase
more will be purchased

will reason intervene,
will spines be stiffened
will a filibuster be broken,
stepping back from the brink
or will more arms be loosed
in our land, on the streets

scrambling the lizards

scrambling the lizards,
across the lawn, the sidewalk,
like fighters on the tarmac, on alert,
sprinting at a moment’s notice
 
scrambling the lizards,
from their hiding, their hangars,
hidden in the grass, the weeds,
running for the bushes…

born after #Columbine – v2

All of them were born after Columbine
in the shadow of the gun, the chaos
the bleakness of this world
with no memory of a time before.
 
None of them born before the mass shooting
the endless debates, the rocketing sales,
active shooter/ lock-down drills
now part of their school days.

If the walls have ears – v2

If the walls have ears
what about trees, the mountains,
what about the forests, the fields,
filled with all living things.
 
If the walls have ears,
remembering stories, telling,
what they have heard
so many secrets to reveal.
 
If the walls have ears
surely the ocean, the rivers,
the water raining from heaven
all of creation has stories to tell.

What is the ocean singing - v3

What is the ocean singing,
Who are the #mountains calling,
For whom do the birds cry;
 
How many #secrets do #plants hold
here on earth below?
 
Where does everything come from,
Why do hummingbird wings
buzz in the backyard;
 
When did nature become so beautiful,
How many stars can you number?
