From Unity to Community

Thank you, Marin County Fair, for awarding this poem 3rd place in Any Other Poetry!

(My favorite poem I’ve ever written, “Headline Antidote” also received 5th place in this category!)

From Unity To Community

In a twirling rainbow of humanity,

love surrounded hate’s insanity.

 

Working together for utopia now.

Can’t wait any longer, anyhow.

 

Mind’s eye filled with vision.

 

Feet springing into action,

dancing toward tomorrow,

with songs of joyous unison.

 

Plant the seeds of peace

in holy soils ripe for flowers.
