  1. That was splendid and most apt in a way. Today I am carrying a message:

    We have 100 contributions to date, and I am trying again to rope in as many contributors to the Poets for Peace challenge (in place until this the end of August). The many voices in response to this have been fantastic, and I’d love you to add yours (again, if applicable) if you can. Feel free to use an existing piece of writing or a new one asking for peace and/or about the troubled times in which we live.

    If you are interested, please leave your poem in the comments section of Neha’s bog and it will be added. https://forgottenmeadows.wordpress.com/2016/07/16/calling-all-poetscreative-minds-to-a-grand-collaboration-poets-for-peace/comment-page-5/#comment-19287

    Thank you –
    Your voice matters.

  2. That those very ethics live, are domiciled within the ‘head’ yet prompt such violence when said ethics are perceived to be polar opposites is the saddest of things. Beautifully crafted poem Paul

  3. Makes me think of those ponderous words which appear immediately before the Divine decision to send a deluge in the time of Noah: ‘And every man did whatever was right in his own mind.’ A truly dangerous thing . . .
