    They make their own wind to send children
    out into the world
    thrive in electrical storms
    have their own force that pushes them
    to emerge ready to be seen every morning
    some can bend the mind
    form miniature circles and amphitheaters
    provide shelter and shade

    and all the while we think of apples falling
    an atomís dance
    and a cat thatís neither here nor there

    while failing to see powers that create
    as they feed on radioactive waste
    and dream of one single forest again.

    I feel the poems you've written lately are almost like a prayer. Gratitude and wonder and respect for our magical earth and it's giving intention to always return to us. And within, a poignant, sad, cry to remember that all life needs love and nourishment. It is a beautiful poem, Danny.
    Are your handprints in those ancient caves? I will bet that you were a Shaman in a past life.

    I agree with both previous commentators.

    What I find so appealing about this piece is the way in which the speaker articulates this concern for the planet and the nourishment that life needs, without feeling didactic. It’s as subtle as it is powerful.

    Thank you, Foxee and Syd. Yes that work blew me away, its a beautiful word and a beautiful thought. I feel finally, after all these years trying that maybe, just maybe, I am beginning to understand "the light touch".
