Necessary Change — A Poem

Bleeding Hearts, branch.jpg

“Branching Hearts” — C.Birde, 5/19

 

When –

did waste

become laudable?

ignorance,

noble?

callous cruelty,

commendable?

When did we

lose our way?

Wind sighs

judgment,

curls through

trees’ observing

boughs, and

rain patters

truth.

Our days –

earth-bound

and -dependent –

pass.

Change looms

near at hand –

of heart and

mind,

of perspective,

objectives.

What path forward

will we chose?

When?
