  • Are there enough of us now?

    Synchronistic connections,
    linking us one
    by one
    by one.

    Each in a chosen spot, the very perfect spot.
    Some intuit this; some don't but soon will.

    No accidental assembly, this.

    No wishes for notoriety,
    just hearts dedicated to dignity, nourishment, kindness
    for all sentient beings.

    The glue that binds us is formidable
    and not to be underestimated.

    When push comes to shove
    we will hang back and remember where the shoving took us before.
    A new path, always here, will suddenly become crystal clear.
    We will make a quiet stand,
    we will refuse to participate any longer
    in the madness.

    And this decision, this decision born of love
    will save us.
