Even with insects Some are hatched out musical Some, alas, tone-deaf. Issa
Freedom James Kavanaugh Man does not want freedom, He only talks of it, Satisfied to choose his slavery And to pay it homage. Freedom asks too much: Silence and strength, The death of empty alliances An end to ego baths. Freedom confronts loneliness And lives with it, Makes more of larks than lust, Builds no monumernts to itself. Freedom, content to live without goals, Satisfied that living is enough, Scoffs at titles, laughs at greed, Too free to propose reforms. Man does not want freedom He fears its demands, And only needs to talk of it... The free man has no such need. But man can live without freedom, Content to laugh at slavery And to know today That yesterdays pain is gone.
Violin Room Peggy Leyva Conley Yellow sunburst painted walls Violin lays still on a chair Music notes Mural of seaports open room stillness.
Quietude Patience Strong If you stand very still in the heart of a wood... You will hear many wonderful things The snap of a twig and the wind in the trees And the whirl of invisible wings If you stand very still in the turmoil of life And wait for the voice from within You will be led down the quiet ways of wisdom and peace... In a world of chaos and din If you stand very still And hold to your faith You will get all the help that you ask You will draw from the silence all the things that you need Hope and courage and strength for your tasks.
