Here we stand,

Days,

Nights,

Years,

Watching the corn grow,

Watching the grass grow,

Watching the Hunters curse

As flocks of birds rise, circle,

And disappear over the horizon,

Always in the wrong place, at the wrong time.

 

Is this why we wait?

Is this what we stand for?

 

Tell me there is more.

Tell me there is a reason

Why we stand here,

Other than to bear witness

To the inevitable.

The photo and the words… As I sit here, watching the bad Sunday morning TV, I am ever more moved by this post.

Click the tv is off. Thank you.

I see a book for you- a book of your photos and poems and other musings.
