ruminating and contemplating

Posted to Action Poetry




how much feeling
revolves with perception
useless to fear
yet anxiety beckons
is war the way
of the world

Sadam corners cruelty
Pakistan and India duel with nukes
Palestinians and Israelis in an endless feud

quiet before the storm -
storms brew larger in silence
time to speak
in loudest tones
thunder, light up the skies
in resonant fury

sweet honeyed tones
bring minor relief
time to mustard plaster
poultice and ice
join me in country size chant
release the balance
halt the procedure
one moment of sense
just one

come on
join me
