The Twin Towers

In memory of 9/11

Two old friends standing together,

great sturdy tall bodies 

touched by the sky.

In which we sought shelter.


In which we sought comfort
from cloud and sun.

So many souls 

waiting to receive the stars

for the light of morning.

 

I stop in their company,

to rest, for a moment,

to say a prayer for each one.

To offer blessings.

Surrounded by the beautiful,

touched by innocence, 

the breathing men and women—

the weary—the laughing—

the curious—the crying—

the reality of dreams


fully evolved—all the processes
of life,

the flame of infinity lives with them.

 

All the children

to be received by the stars,

so many souls,

you are all

so close to my heart.

 

For 9/11/2013
