Is now

Waking with resolve watching

the hands that never go round

on plug-in light up boxes

we’ve become electric, static

change of winds blowing

swirling in directions we can’t catch

or fathom the lightning that takes it all

with a single click of a switch

we look to the wall

old-school prophecy of time

that slips into a place we cannot retrieve

precious moments


One word gives a light heart as I hear the voice,

the smile behind

giving strength to stand firm

against that which seeks to cause stress

for the time is

now to STOP the spread of anger,

that suffocates the peace

leaving a void

that should be filled,

each second like a cup overflows

with life-giving beauty and wonder

and the skies still crackle and groan

under the weight of clouds wrestling

within the sky, body blows of cold and hot

creating the energy

the catalyst

for change.

One tiny thing,

just one something different to change the mix

to create something new

to be something different than

it was a moment ago,




it will live to see another day

better, stronger.
