We Are One





Blue skies,
darkness within.
We cross lines,
we cross continents,
and time stands still.
Humanity cries,
but little or no action is taken.
I lie down with my brothers and sisters,
sheltered in their embrace.
We are connected in this vast universe,
under these blue skies.
We are one breath,
we are one people,
we are one.

  11. I like these lines best:

    Humanity cries,
    but little or no action is taken.
    I lie down with my brothers and sisters,
    sheltered in their embrace

    (as I said over at Brian's blog, the pic is creepy)

    good take on the prompt ~
