"Pacifist" - 5/27/19

Taking the high road is not always easy
There are times when volcanic ash beckons me
To succumb to its fiery seductive symphony
But in my heart I know surrendering to havoc's self-pity
Will only deafen me to the miracle of each cerulean
Dawn's brave beauty so I breath in regret and exhale
Empathy grateful for perspective history has given me
