In sorrow for lives needlessly lost

There are only 3 drops of dew on the rose,
But they reminded me of tears.

I weep for our race who can't seem to learn:
That there IS enough to go around,
If we share and don't hoard.

That ALL religions are a way to acknowledge
That the universe is too vast and wonderful to fully understand,
Not a way to dominate or avoid domination.

That life is the most precious thing of all.

It's the stuff that makes flowers unfold,
Sunsets to linger,
Kisses so deep and warm,
And loves that last forever.

It's been a while since I've last visited...you've got a lot of wonderful photography! And, I really agree with what you said in this entry. Tolerance must be understood and practiced by more people! Glad to see you're still active here...miss you on 43T!
