Upside

So comfortable in my life

eat drink sleep create

ready to create a better way

moving into new areas

really moving

no time to eat

there will be food later

drink water

prepare a bed

with many pillows

tomorrow will travel

towards a new destination

_____________

WHO announces the end of pandemic

You do not have to wash your hands

or stay away from your friends

free to move throughout the country

and the world (with your vaccine card)

still be courteous and do not cough

or sneeze

Coming In

My daughter loved the book of poetry Where the Sidewalk Ends. She took it to bed. Nestled in those pages was the line “If you are a dreamer, come in.” by Shel Silverstein.

I remember the dreams I had for me and I remember the dreams I had for you. Not just ordinary ones like getting a good grade in school or going to a fine university, living in a two story house or taking a trip to Greenland. Not the dream to be a poet or magician or architect. My dreams concerned paradigms, broader in scope than world peacekeeping or disarmament. I dreamt contentment for us all, lack of greed and pride, love of the human race, coming in together.
