Open Invitation

In light of this week's tragic events which continue today, I find myself filled with worry for friends and strangers alike and wondering at the senselessness of what has happened. I want to invite anyone who stops by to add on to this poem. The community spirit of sharing thoughts here is a direct response to the dividing nature of terror.

Silence has been shattered

stillness shaken and raw.

Hearts are bared and bleeding

terror has taken its toll.

Fear and panic leave restlessness

and hesitation in their wake.

Wondering why wondering how

wondering when it will end.
