the craft rise and fall


the craft rise and fall
waves taking more than giving
their cargo scattered

yet here we spurn all strangers
in need of welcoming shores

Using craft and rise, this is my response to a challenge from Colleen Chesebro: Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka #Poetry Challenge #19: Craft & Rise.

  1. It is becoming clear what we cannot do. I have learned through many years of benevolence work that roadblocks always arise (no matter who is in power). So the question we need to ask is what is the most helpful pathway left open to us. What is not an option is to let the people sink.
    Light never needs to rage against the darkness. It just shines and the darkness falls back.
