TALKING ABOUT WHAT WE KNOW


  FLIGHT, FIGHT OR FREEZE 

June 30, 2020
by Glenda S Wallace
Summer is here.
Independence Day soon.
Now 126,000 are dead from Covid.
Cancelled celebrations.
Breath denied. Protests. Looting.
Confederate statues toppling.
Culture wars seasoned at the top.
America in 2020.
 
Makes you want to run away,
but there is no such place.
Nothing ever goes away.
Not your trash.
Not a life force.
Not a virus with a good lead.
Magical thinkers aside.
Facts abide.
We must see
20/20.

Some won't.
Some will want the flight,
to escape that which they cannot change.

Some will want the fight,
to champion rights, to talk of sheep.

Some will want to freeze
like a small crab on the sand
caught in the light of a midnight crabber.
Numb escape so close.
Cool dark surrounding sand.
Just one blink....

And then we're gone,
like the half-million souls in this world
found by a sneaky new virus
that inflames
all it touches
with long-term
lingering effects.

...Onward.

“A beetle
will chase after an opening of light,
while a cockroach
will scatter at a crack of it.

How are we different from insects?
Nobody is purely good
or purely evil.
Most of us are in-between.

There are moths
that explore the day
and butterflies that play at night.
Polarity is an integral part of nature
— human or not human.”

― Suzy Kassem

ROLL OVER
Living in a rural area of Montana offers many moments of simple joy, like watching young horses in a green pasture on a hot day. It's especially heartening to honor these moments when the world seems on fire from Hong Kong to Lafayette Square in D.C.

Enjoy!



...lie down in green pastures...beside the still waters...restoreth your soul....
