Einstein philosopher genius of our age.. cartoon image took the podium when paged.. slowly he climbed pine stairs rail was teak and rose.. rabbi’s eyes of age looked on.. Ginsburg whispered prose.. Nietzsche fractions seconds looking for a clue.. Kerouac.. Watts.. Houdini.. unknown Swami too.. centuries past offered Newton.. those who measured time.. Dylan looked and passed in magic words most fitting rhymes.. T. S. Elliot and Shelley.. Thomas.. Sir Paul.. Sir John.. Donovan.. Gandhi.. hosts from times to be and gone.. met in secret contradicting what would be.. an answer for the living world at peace.. loving.. free..
One question was asked words mattered not.. not matter one.. Mandela with a tearful eye asked why lemmings must run?..
Laughter then running through a forest in my mind.. it is out now.. earth path nothing hidden.. joy to find.. starlight wonder starlight needs no other name.. just begs of you.. reflect true in life truest of games..
Opinion for this day.. I heard JFK speak.. I heard Bobby Kennedy.. Martin Luther King brought tears to my eyes.. and promise.. cause found in respect.. recognition.. those words addressed me in living truth.. In these times of varied duplicity.. as I see the desperation and foolishness of negative campaigns.. I hope folks around the world look to themselves and others in recognition that we may grow as a species.. Peace Tony (I am sorry my knowledge of prominent women was not up to a coed poem.. forgive me ladies)
