POST 144: Freedom, painting, poem, Smoothie, Maine, South Carolina, Love

by Carol Bass


Consider all people today
who are not free
as each second we do always

We’ve had our vitamins
and avocado smoothies
we go paddling on the creeks
our oars silent as the water moccasins
in the black water

Pray for them some peace
for their souls

Have the birds of Syria
changed their migration route
of a thousand years?

Are the dolphins and whales
talking about us
under the seas
asking Why?
