VULNERABLE TRILLIUMS

Our Father taught us
not to harm trilliums.
“If you pluck trilliums
it kills them”
even if a field
as trillions
of trilliums.

MOVABLE SEEDS

Some seeds cling to Mother
Earth, such as
moonchildren pine cones
and some are
sagittarian acorns
rolling away
from where they were born.

WINTER GREEN

Victoria brought the custom
of Christmas trees
from Germany.
She was
Britain’s queen.
Now there and
in America
thieves rob
many woods
of winter green.

IGNITED TO ACTION

The hardworking man, after
years, it was found,
never learned to read.

The criminal, the trial
revealed, had slept in
the bathtub every night,
in fear. His mother had
beaten him severely each
time he wet the bed.

The starving stray dog
left pawprints of blood.

We had tred on the sacred
ground of their suffering,
and so withdrew, humbled
and ignited to action.

Connelly wrote of the
criminal with a violent
parent
    
VIOLENT PYRAMIDS

Inherently violent
are pyramids
of hierarchy.
Those lower in
the structure
find their own
destinies stifled
as
their souls’ higher arcs
are truncated by the
orders of
hierarchs.

DESERT RAIN

Rain dances
Trains filled with cars
full of water
Water pipelines
Many drought solutions
for hearts
to God aligned
