Day 29: Spiritual Dissonance

is this cognitive dissonance? listening to Elder

recount the ancient agreements, while reading

the bombing of another Medecins Sans Frontiers


is this even possible? Elder, to gather our teachings

to gather back to our clear and gentle roots

to be curious, creative, kind, and stand

against the tide of plain, cowardly evil.

to live, and to help others to live, spiritually

awake, physically sound, mentally sharp

and in our hearts, a song;  this is nothing

childish, this is fierce work. hammer

on the drum of healing. hammer on

the heart drum all night long.
