Shadow

Composition: Light

Jeweled feathers awaiting flight,

Silhouette unceasingly walking each labyrinth chamber,

Transfixed by holy other, familiar stranger,

Hopefulness,

Simultaneous bated breath,

Will we?

Soar or sink?

I untether the velvet,

Birdcage heart door swings

“Prodigal flΓ’neur” the bird sings

Day 30: NaPoWriMo (Things That Happen Again and Again)

http://www.sacworldaidsday.org/candle-light-vigil.html

Sun sets, moon rises,

New day, new lives begin,

To seek peace, there must be war,

There will always be rich, there will always be poor,

Those who celebrate and those who mourn,

Those with strength and those meek,

Those righteous hungry and thirsting,

The O/other, the same,

A line, a lie, a name,

The truth is a circle and we sit around the bonfire and sing,

We raise our voices to nothing and it’s everything,

Nothing is everything,

We will be free,

When we can see,

The line between you and me,

Arbitrary,

Blessed are the ignorant,

Blessed be the skeptic,

For theirs is the kin-dom of heaven.
