wind drumming | Poem


wind drumming

why do we think we think alone
when thinking lives in space

animal kingdom reflecting our fears
"...they are all staring,"

"Speak to the wind,
the agrevation of the will,
lest violent thoughts find another way out."

it is said
when the women pick up the drum
peace will come
