Memorial Day

Every year we have a day to remember soldiers who died in war, but I think if we really want to honor them, we will choose to stop fighting the wars that require their sacrifice.

We create our destiny and we can change it.

Educating the mind
 without educating the heart
is no education at all.
~ Aristotle

Every day is a chance
to get it right.
Not by luck
but deliberately.
To make a better choice
than the one
 I made yesterday.
To not be beaten
 by my failures.
But to learn from them
and be
 a better me.

Deadening Field

Don't shine
Keep me in this darkened state of mind
I will find my peace alone
And alone I'll spend my time
Things pass
Things die
But the memories stay behind
Closing my eyes
I choke on my thoughts
I grow deaf from the sound of my cries
Feeling who I am
Touching the pain locked inside
Dying in the grasp of desire

We Just Don't Care

It seems that we've made our decision regarding what to do about climate change. We are going to do nothing and hope that the effects will be manageable. The history of humanity is filled with shortsighted, illogical choices. We can now add another one to our quiver.

the spaces between your trees
are wide
your canopy is open
yellow light reaches ground
where grasses grow
their stems leave
their leaves die
reborn in magic soil
I wander this open plain
searching the horizon
