For John (Give Peace a Chance)


A new day can be
a cycle lasting a
thousand years.
How the time is
dark and sludging
and the hard bits
stick to the pores
and we grind to halt,
submerged as we are,
and we cry for
any way out.
But in the thicket
something is growing.
In the aching slowness,
the unfathomable
deep and dark,
our eyes begin
to open, and in
the heavy slowness,
there is time to
take everything in.
And when it’s
too hard to see,
we turn inward,
and look for the light
in the jungle of our
caged hearts.
And our hearts expand,
and the light
filters out, and we
find out way into
our humanity. – TS
