Dawning -- 2018
.
Is there peace on the other side of the mountain?
Is there peace on the other side of the river?
Is there peace on the other side of the world, somewhere?
Is there a place where men and their toys don’t
. . go after one another?
Is there any peace in the hearts of the oligarchs
. . or is it all greed and spite and control?
Is there a relaxation of hatred anywhere?
A lessening of the build up of weapons
a realization of the softening of the heart.
Or are we stuck in this down course ever down down
into mistrust and vanquishing of the poor?
Must the powerful break every rule on Earth
that stands for health and heart and humanity?
Must religions war with each other
and men rule every nation and enterprise on Earth?
Some breakthrough has occurred as we celebrate the youth.
Some nations have allowed their women to speak freely
. . and take over the sick yearning of male dominance.
And the young who’ve had enough of violence and greed
. . are standing up for a renewed consciousness
hearing “my religion is kindness”
and resurrecting to this day the powerful notion of
. . compassion,
cooperation and creativity in everything they do.

Is there democracy on the other side of the mountain
. . or the world somewhere
or in our own back yard?
Democracy that again will save us from tyrants
and break down the “morbidly wealthy”
that are sucking every bit of worth out of life?
Deep down within, everyone appreciates the dawn
. . which is coming, out the window, now.
And it is young and it is powerful and it is light.
.

a happy Easter to you!
