4-20/21 again – in the night – stars above

my little fashlight not coming close to touching them – 

yet raised to the heavens   – 

a feeble light

of mine

of hope 

of sorrow 

of healing   – 

a man died a year ago

and today, his killer has been found guilty

and that death 

and that verdict

may actually activate the process of healing  – 

of justice

of recompence

of acknowledging that all human beings

are created equal    – 

the president to the 13 year old 

the 95 year old queen to Kat’s brand new baby 

all of us equal 

and miraculous

and worthy of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness

we’ve been on this road 

since the apple tree

and we’ve a long way to go 

yet, Source of Life to help us   – 

we’ll get there   – 

together   –   Free at last!  Free at last!  Thank God Almighty, we’re Free at last!

arm in arm

all the kinds of people there are   –    siblings & equal 

all in this together

with love as the glue 

to light and justice                                     Amen.
