And what she does not have
The paradox of silence
And the closed face of pain
And the folly of staying in one place
The blur of the hummingbird’s wings
And the owl's unanswered question
The quiet will of the redwood
And the deep well of the body’s softness
Not the lesson, but the teacher
Meditation and the peace it brings
The man on the window ledge
And the testimony he leaves
The faces behind the barbed wire
And the eyes of the refugee and the demented
The unoriginality of sin
And the hacked-off bodies in the "Name of God"
The patience of vultures
And the gluttony of robber barons
The black man who cannot breathe
And systemic racism in America
The "bombs bursting in air"
And starvation in the world
"Liberty and justice for all"
And the miracle of tomorrow without promise
