Storm a’coming

“It is not light that we need, but fire;

it is not the gentle shower, but thunder.

We need the storm, the whirlwind, and the earthquake.”

Frederick Douglass

I feel a storm a’coming.  This political climate is creating the Perfect Storm for unrest, resistance, change.  The people have become apathetic which has allowed a fox (or foxes) into the henhouse.  This administration want to destroy our institutions.  They want to destroy the EPA, Education, health care, our rights – everything that makes us a civilized country.  Stand up for our environment.  Stand up for our planet.  Stand up for the People.  ALL of the people.  I’m weary of being silent.  Wake up.

Speaks to me…

The beauty of the trees,

the softness of the air,

the fragrance of the grass……speaks to me.

 ~

The summit of the mountain,

the thunder of the sky,

the rhythm of the sea…speaks to me.

~

The faintness of the stars,

the freshness of the morning,

the dewdrop on the flower…speaks to me.

~

The strength of fire,

the taste of salmon,

the trail of the sun,

and the life that never goes away,

they speak to me.

~

And my heart soars.
