Footprints in the Windsm # 1366

Our society is in pain
& since our society now practically spans the world
the same pain is expressed everywhere:
violence, robbery, murder, rape, war, terror
we scream, we yell at one another, we see the other as threat
we try to force the other into our mold, into the old ways
all explodes—
and yet…
we are in times of great flux
the perturbance is getting larger, the swings wilder, the ride more frightening
even the ground, the oceans and the weather are shifting
the old, the reliable, the comfortable are going away
(are we too?)
something new (which we protest) is approaching
birth
