New Year Supermoon

 

 

So full
so close
to the Earth

Bigger brighter
lightening the darkness
now slowly waning

Longer days
give some hope
though belief alone
isn’t enough

Wolves,
howling in hunger
outside our door
breed fear

How did this happen?

Who do we blame?

Who will help us now?

When dawn alights
on the cancer
of our indifference
our suffering energy
turns to awareness
of wrongs done to us
the rights taken from us
informed now —
take action

read thoughtfully
write deliberately
study diligently
think critically
gather collectively
listen attentively
discuss cogently
engage publicly

do it now
