for 9/11

death need not be feared as all of us are marching towards this end.  yet, when death comes unexpectedly and horribly, we are dumbfounded, especially when it is caused by an unreasonable struggle for power or blind faith.  this little poem is to remember that tragic date in world history --

two towers, two faiths,
each one seeking dominance --
thus, innocents died.

i will not say anything else except to quote the late great poet, john lennon:

life is very short and there's no time for fussin' and fightin' , my friend.

and this haunting song from him as well.

let us offer a moment of silence and remember ... and hope,  this will never happen,

ever again.

Namaste brother, illusions upon illusions.

The great warrior picks up the knife. Stabbing himself in the heart whilst blaming another so that his tribe may go to war.

We must not waver, we must demand truth.

In Lak' ech, brother Sito, mists of illusion...

thanks again for the visit, brother, it is difficult to imagine how some will use even despicable means and sacrifice innocent lives for the pursuit of self-serving motives.
