there could be peace. there could be one world.
Gandhi said he didn’t even want to be on this earth,
unless humanity unified. I get it. see how the one tree
is holding on with the other? see how the water is
nourishing everything? see the confluence of ways
of compassion over ways of destruction? not that
there aren’t plenty of destructions going on in this
natural world, everywhere. much life going over the
most beautiful of falls is dying, and fast. these trees
growing out of rock, aren’t bound forever. nothing
is fixed, not forever. still, somehow, these sights of
the living beings along with us in this world: the living
skies, the living waters, the living stones, the living
trees, the living plants, the living animals...they all
remind us, at all times, every way possible: that we
are passing by. no forever. why not bring each
one another, home...
and so, raise a flag of hope for the most decent of
ways to be human. not about nation, but about ‘us’,
the living beings, of this patiently majestic earth...

One United Planet of Living Beings...or, nothing,
