you will rise again, a poem

img_3620the sun is fading,
the starlight tarnished,
but the brilliant moon
whispers in the night ~
you will rise again

“Your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; you shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of streets to live in.” Isaiah 58:12

For all the people I know and don’t know who work tirelessly for social justice, peace and sustainability.

Thanks for the inspiration Linda F., good friend, book buddy and now-and-then lunch buddy.
