In The Wild

In the wild there is no Credo
Nor a hideous disbelief;
Song birds never are assertive
Of the Truth, the Bliss, or Grief.

  1. so very moving, why can’t we love one another without prejudice, life would be so beautiful.

  2. This struck a chord with me. This past weekend I was in a park and I was accosted to 2 pairs of teenagers who had clearly been sent out by their church to “spread the good news”. I’m still sputtering with outrage and thinking of what I should have said to them.

      • Really terrible, peoples thoughtlessness and disrepect, but I Iove what you point out Eddy, what could have been! That made me smile. This is a wonderful photo and reflection by Kibran, on a difficult day… the earth and the world holds it’s breath.

      • Whatever the outcome, the Sun will shine again tomorrow.
        Thank you very much for your kind and thoughtful response.
        Enjoy a peaceful day Bruce
