There Was No Sky

.
There was no sky
Above the day
Above the night
I learned to fly
.
Silent snow and mountains
All around
All around
All around
Silent snow and mountains
All around
.
Babies cry
Cougar screams
Mother dreams
.
Lemon thorns
Escape
Mother’s tight
Squeezed eyes
Sweet blossoming
Orange trees
Buried upside down
Frozen in the ground
Broken roots lash
Disguised as
Sleeping hands
Fear locks the door
.
There was no sky
Above the day
Above the night
I learned to fly
.
Silent snow and mountains
All around
All around
All around
Silent snow and mountains
All around
.
There was no sky
Above the day
Above the night
I learned to fly
.
Lemon thorns
Escape
Mother’s tight
Squeezed eyes
Sweet blossoming
Orange trees
Buried upside down
Frozen in the ground
Broken roots lash
Disguised as
Sleeping hands
Fear locks the door

Half-Moon

Half moon in blue sky,
No moon-shadows for dog chases,
Restful sleep tonight.

“Language expresses culture.

“The best way to modify, change, or destroy culture is to modify, change, or destroy language.”

So many entire languages, and the associated culture, are already gone.

Language is now being used to manipulate culture, rather than culture creating language.

 

Pure Double-D

“THE MOST

CRIPPLING HUMAN

DISABILITY IS

BULLHEADED PRIDE,

CLOSELY FOLLOWED
