PERFECT VISION, by (me!), sandra, ttgp originally posted 10/18/06

my contribution to cynthia bryant's "gift of words" collection of poetry for the iraqi people.

perfect vision
fellow humans,

it is crucial we look
with both eyes wide open
at the cruelty humans can inflict
on one another

to see the pain
experience the suffering
be angered into action

it is crucial we know
with heart, mind and both arms wide open
the compassion humans can extend
to one another

to see the offering
receive the love
be united by its power

it is crucial we starve hate
-to death!
and feed respect everyday
~in abundance
the diverse nutrients it requires
-to live!

it is crucial, now and always
we close our eyes
for even one moment each day

to see -with perfect vision-
all humans

all humans in harmony
as we rotate together
on this miracle planet

earth.
