Flesh & Bones

In the silence
The quiet mind speaks,
In the silence
The gentle heart feels
And searches for love.

in_the_midst_of_a_storm_400I walked the streets
And blue alleyways,
I walked amongst
The lifeless
Steel and glass,
Timber and stone,
And found
Flesh and bones,
And passion,
And compassion,
Strife and life.

In the cold cities
I found an ocean
Of humanity
Lapping at the feet
Of giant steel
And glass towers
Washing the streets,
And subways,
And the basements,
And clubs,
And museums
And hallowed spaces
With the warmth
Of our humanity.

I walked the streets
And found performers,
And street vendors
And beggars,
Couples in love,
Office workers,
Coffee stands,
Burger joints,
Children playing
In green spaces,
The homeless in
Back alleyways
Curled up in
Cardboard boxes,
Fat business men
Stuffing their faces
With greasy food,
Poets in coffee shops
Dreaming of our
Tomorrows.

I walked the streets
And found acts of charity
And compassion
That transcended
The evil of
Our brutality.

In the silence
The quiet mind speaks,
In the silence
The gentle heart feels
And searches for love;
Amongst the
Steel and glass,
Timber and stone,
Flesh and bones,
I found a reflection
Of myself and swam
in the ocean
Of humanity.
