quiet shapes hover,
silent shadows cast by youth–
spirits in mirrors
befriend the stage unfolding–
fill the mind’s eye with delight

My particular thoughts for this unfolding day are for those all over the world struggling to cope with daily survival in the wake of disasters both natural and man-made. May we learn to respond with open hearts and hands.
