Unfolding of the Journey 2012

To pluck or be planted
In the moist dry soil
A seasoned
Time Under heaven

Through birth or death
To kill or heal
That is the question

As the dry leaves break down
The lack of crystals and emerald blades

Weeping will build
Upon the laughter of frowns

To mourn or dance
That is the dilemma

We shall embrace
And throw away stones together

When we refrain
We shall number the lost
Not keep

But purge
The sewn silence

The word of Love will be spoken
Not Hate
Not War

"Five hundred twenty seven thousand and forty
How will you spend them?
(Inspired by Ecclesiastes 3)
