If I may, your poem reminded me of this poem...
The Bees Are Dying

Bees are dying they tell me.

Understood be it that we cannot change a thing.

I choose to hunker down and place my head
between my knees instead of getting up and doing
anything worthwhile about it instead I'll buy the
bread that isn't organic because it's twelve cents cheaper

and the trip to the store is faster in my car instead of
on my bike and I'm expecting that call from my father
and I really cannot afford to miss it because he calls so
rarely and I just want to connect with him before he dies

and I really cannot care about almonds costing twice as
much next year when I cannot afford beef this year and
the grasslands won't last anyway because the globe is warming
and there's not enough rain to make hay and why should I care

about the poisons on the fields when I still cannot find a bug-killer
strong enough to rid my house of cockroaches - those roaches
who can live for a year on a drop of grease left on the back of
the stove when I last fried donuts for a treat on one of those

rare days when I felt good but the bees are dying and I am sad
to think that soon we will all be dead because we cannot stop
the madness and I know that the bees are dying and once again
I'll buy the bag of bleached white flour grown with roundup seeds

from Monsanto because it makes such nice white sweet bread.

Red Birds Bleeding

My wrists were

Once red birds

I flew away

The red birds died

My wrists I bound

In cotton sheets

And baling twine

I flew away

The red birds died

My lips were black

Like ravens eating

Quietly feeding

The night flew down

And ate their wings

The ravens coughed

My charcoal lips

Were speaking

In the episode THE ODYSSEY part 3, Timmy has given up hope that Lassie, lost for months, will ever return...
and is about to bury her toys at their secret spot when he hears a familiar bark over the hill....

So true. I've seen some of it myself.

My old pal Lawrence. I met him while working on an old house next door to where he lived. He was 95 yo at that time and was amazing. I took this pic on his 97th birthday. He was a walking history book and a most disarming creature. He always swore to me he would live to be 100, and he did, passing at 100yrs 8 mos. in '05. I have so many interesting memories of him. I loved and miss him very much.{#Good-vibes}
