POST 147: dog, Africa, Invisible Children, Maine, South Carolina, FEDX, facebook, awareness

WALKING THE DOG THOUGHTS, Invisible Children

Closing the box of sorrows
in a closet for self survival
lasts a second or two

Sending love out to all children
daily moments of communion
creating a room big enough for prayer to well up
overflowing exploding
into action and energy and courage

Closing the front door,
cradling all babes in our souls
we walk in the warm kitchen
from spring
past budding forsythias in Wally’s yard
past the Fedx truck in our driveway of freedom
determined

Children no longer forgettable
as last fall’s maple leaf
moulding in the yard, please
energy from still hearts screaming into action
