Natl Poetry Month, Day 8, Awareness


Awareness

Amid sun and sand
Waves lap on shore
Wind brushes the earth
And birds fly over coast and sea
Carrying messages from the gods,
Gentleness
Calm
Serenity
Prevail in a chaotic world,
Only if we
Look
Feel
And Listen
Will we understand?
Or are we blinded by hate
Deaf to the screams
And numb to our toxic culture,
What is our direction?
What is our fate?
I look at the waves lapping on shore
And the birds flying over coast and sea
I feel the wind brushing over me
And listen to nature—
Trying to understand
