On Unity



***
the wise old monk ponders the perfection
of the word "unity" being part of
the word "community".

***
perfect unity:
the trees, the sky, the ocean waves,
and me.

***
you galloped along the shore,
i followed after,
in perfect unity.

***

The wild world waits
for humans to learn to live
with it in unity.

***

The animals already know
how to live in unity. They are waiting
for us to join them there.

    We should all strive to make this world a better place to live in and care for wildlife as well.
    Beautifully penned :D

    Lots of love,
    Sanaa

  4. Nice. I like the connection you make between unity and community. Because if you don't go about creating community you will never have unity.

  11. Indeed. Wisely penned. :-)
    We have to learn to live in unity with the world at large. There's a lot of discord.

  16. Sherry this beautifully penned verse speaks (hopefully) to mankind. Maybe inciteful words can open the heart and mind to hear wisdom.

  18. "The wild world waits
    for humans to learn to live
    with it in unity."...And we never learn...and get thrown into a world in which we feel grievously cut off from the raw throb of existence. Sigh!!
    Love this,Sherry!! Terrific lines....

  21. I always come away form your poems feeling i have learnt something - not just wordy (community) but earthy (which is better) - i think the problem maybe we think too much - or not at all..finding the middle ground is probably good.. :)

  22. Sherry,

    A susual humans are the last to even entertain learning from nature, animals and the universe as a whole..Singularly, humans seem to only wreck havoc upon the earth..A unity of world spirit might be a dream, but so much could be healed by that aspiration, if ever it became a reality..
