We are deep
We are wild
We have many stories
Of hope, heartbreak,
Deep reverence, deep knowing,
Deep strength, and deep loss.
We each have a thousand stories
Of a thousand moments
Of a thousand tears of joy and grief;
Brilliant green, orange and yellow sunrises
The heavy mist on dark shores.
To dig deep.
To see me in you, and you in me
And to acknowledge at least one tiny moment of “we”
that could be peace.
A poem for my fellow Rotary Peace Fellows
