Wednesday February 2, 2011 Poetic Assides/ A Small Stone/Three Word Wednesday

A Small Stone #2

Far away
People protest
High cost of food
It has risen 70%

Well done
Wall Street

Three Word Wednesday Prompt: Abrasive, Handful, Loss

Wonders of Nature
Gather by handfuls
Sand, seashells,
Mountains, rivers
Deer, beaver
Eagles, hawks
All of the wonders of Nature

It is us who are abrasive
Our way of "life"
(Perhaps I mean death)
The wonders of Nature
Will be our loss

Poetic Assides #121 A belief poem.

To Think or To Believe
Belief is passive
End of conversation
Closed mind

Think is active
Invites conversation
Open mind

I believe in thinking

Isnt that the truth? My income hasnt changed for twenty years while everything goes up and up and up, and gets smaller and smaller in the packages till it is laughable. We all need to start eating whole foods grown locally, and shake the multinationals' death grips on the economy.Argh. Good stone!

All three pieces speak of a concern for the world we inhabit. It's present race toward a place no one really wants to be. Thank you for raising your voice times three.
