World Changer

“Don’t bother!” Says the small voice in my head. “It’s just a drop in the ocean!” “The suffering in this world’s too great!” “Don’t waste your time and emotions!” What if the pain of the many don’t add? But what if great need comes in ONE? Wouldn’t…

Dying toward Life

The maple seed it twirls around On wings of snowy gusts Up over roofs it spins about Goes where the wind it thrusts. Its journey-end I cannot see Nor grasp where it will lie. It knows that new life comes to be Through willing…
