Palettal Prose: Of Sand

When we gather our grains,

I am sea glass,

a softened shard of aquamarine

tumbling and coming to rest,

edges etched with the collected whispers

of waves, white air, and rain,

me and the sea both sky-formed.

We are shore-born.

Where things meet is where we are made

and the elements add their consent.

Palettal Prose: Equality in Difference

We are all equal in the fact that we are all different. We are all the same in the fact that we will never be the same. We are united by the reality that all colours and all cultures are distinct & individual. We are harmonious in the reality that we are all held to this earth by the same gravity. We don’t share blood, but we share the air that keeps us alive. I will not blind myself and say that my black brother is not different from me. I will not blind myself and say that my brown sister is not different from me. But my black brother is he as much as I am me. But my brown sister is she as much as I am me.”

Moon Day Musings: June 30 2014

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one”

~John Lennon, Imagine
