Weep with the willow, as the forest burns
And the land cries out,
Dance with the girl banging her tambourineWho sold her heart to playFor those who can still hear music.
Wail for the wilting kudzu,
Once your enemy,
That is choking from judgement.
Search for pilgrims who lost their shores
To poverty and war
Combing the beaches for home.
Raise your arms in an act of peace,
Which defies the laws of gravity,
Holding up a rusted ploughshare.
Pray for sanctuaries desecrated
Because they withhold bread
To uphold stale doctrine.
Lose everything we took for granted,
Stored in secret closets,
With graceful surrender
Then use what is left and offer itTo the neighbor who needs it more,For Love's sake.
peace and love,
