August 15, 2017 ~ an anti-fascism poem

Late Summer Fear


Was the subject not clear enough?
How a seething fascism erupts
from the confines of
contracted hearts.

It can happen anywhere, and it does;
it does, as clouds of hate imprison
us all and beat down
the righteous ones.

Let us not be silent; let words
encourage, inspire, heal
and embrace an expanding place
of love and kindness, wisdom
and peace.
