We, Community Of Weathered Communication -

We talk about the sacred,
places ancient as fire, palaces divine in quagmire,
getting lost in footsteps of artistic archaeology, uprooting ghosts in structure's facings,
We want to know why knowledge is forbidden outside the skin
of nourishment's tastings,
pineing for the verbotten dialect of perfect sin,
needing to understand why boats become skuttled in sands of dread,
asking why it seems angels along with demons our confusion conspire,

staring into faces of stone like children seeing new color,
wondering if those rigid lips will ever confess  a crime that We could forgive,
is there rhyme in love haunted by punished valor,
could there be trust established in harmony with ambition refusing to give,
communicating as birds before the malstrom
for directions to the shelter that made Time begin in form when thunder rung,
running into the genesis of Life & Death We trumpet like heros
congratulating each other for finding beauty in burdensome burrows -

J.A.B.  Dedicated to all community builders -

    the reward to me from the work I produce with the inspiration of Providence is to have amazing artists like you Laura feel and or know that we, together can rise above ignorance and apathy to make this planet a better place for life to dwell - thank you - J.A.B.

    Loving the last line, Justin!:) Maybe a place having it's own ecosystem? Certainly some 'weathered communication" happens...bright & sunny, cloudy, still and silent, or storms that can be electrifying. Are we like the barometers of these 'weathered' reports? Best wishes, Mikki :)

    Powerful write Justin "could there be trust established in harmony with ambition refusing to give" A very meaningful poignant sentence. Oh, but if we, the all of humanity of God's Earth could only see beyond our own egos and selfish needs...would not we all be a better Adam & Eve
