final poem of the month!

write a poem about something that happens again and again

i can only do something small
the ripple still reaches the shore

when we meet you are a stranger
but i knew you, and you become beloved

the days are all too heavy
and then we lift together

we need every thing to be different
so we change, change, and change

i thought this was too shattered
but i am whole, we are whole, this is whole

we seek a way through to heaven
we find we each have our own way

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The Indian activist Gandhi led many peaceful rebellions against oppressive governments, first in South Africa and later in British-controlled India. At first he called his strategy "passive resistance," but later disavowed that term because it had negative implications. He ultimately chose the Sanskrit word satyagraha, meaning "love force" or "truth force." "Truth ('satya') implies love," he said, "and firmness ('agraha') is a synonym for force. 'Satyagraha' is thus the force which is born of truth and love." According to my reading of the astrological omens, Virgo, satyagraha should be your word of power in the coming weeks. Your uprising against the forces of darkness has got to do more than say "no." A fierce, primal yes should be at the heart of your crusade.
