Is There A Solution?

Poem By Theresa Ann Moore

Existing within the same minutes of an hour
Peace has virtues that hatred is ready to devour.
Hovering within sight is a foreboding cloud…
With dissension, there is blast inside a crowd.

A rumble deafens, as the many lives are revoked.
The innocent breathe in the hostility and are choked.
Young and old, lie motionless in crimson puddles.
Survivors cry at the sight that horrifyingly befuddles.

Broken, shrouded bodies are taken from the scene.
There is an attempt to rinse the human traces clean.
The magnitude of destruction has sickened humanity.
Helpless, defenseless souls have been abruptly set free.

If we turn from the gore and look the other way,
Will it all disappear and suddenly go away?
How can devastating discord be dissolved?
How can extreme differences be resolved?

A very difficult question to answer. You have very expertly presented the questions. The solution - not one but many - hope and time to begin with.

What Does It Mean?

I had a vision or was it a dream…
In meditation I was completely immersed
I saw an image flying in a darkened sky
Its fiery wings spanned the universe

My little dog has a doughnut tail
It wraps around in a perfect circle...

A Gift Of Time

Time is of the essence.
It is full of many presents.
Some blow up in our faces.
Others give loving embraces.

A Blossoming Rose

Feeling full of immeasurable dreams
Desiring to burst forth with unfolding hues
Opening with the natural ease of a sigh
Blessed with a spattering of morning dew

A Hush Remains

The gray cloudless sky is strangely silent
As my skeletal arms reach toward heaven
Within my frame of time thoughts are absent
Suddenly, from nowhere there is an ascension

A Change Of Luck

It is said that a four leafed clover
Brings good luck to those that find
In the middle summer I looked all over
For a magic leaf of four… a rare kind
