Poem #23 of 30

Dear Universe


Dear Universe,

Take away this killing virus

and along with that

take the need

for humans to climb over one another

to reach for more than we need-

Awaken the dead places in our hearts

and fill those dark voids

with wisdom, light and compassion

Let us know, finally,

that we are all-


inhaling and exhaling one another

and that when I offer my clean breath out

I will be welcome to a return

clean breath in

Thank you for my life.
