All Our History
Is Shared. Each of Us Wants It
Unique, Ours Alone

We turn to Glory
And Away from Blood Until
We are Overwhelmed

Taken by the Chaos
Of Forgotten Memory
And We Cannot Breathe

As That Memory
Weaves our Shared Tapestry More
True than Any Fact

Full of Glory and
Our Bloody Hands, Survived By
Our Forgiving Hearts

Remembering Kent State

Now Fifty Years On
We Still Argue in Guns and
Violence and Hatred

Will We Never Learn
To Answer With Something More,
Different, Beautiful?

Trade Violence For Calm, EBA44E1D-6C98-44AA-B668-022BCC530B2C
Hear Hatred With Love, Guns with
More than Blood and Breath

A New Kind of World,
Not One Gone All Blind In a
Furious Eye for Eye

Salvation Is Ours,
Found Only With Gentle Hands
Open Hearts, and Time

Driving Through Darkness
Chasing the Immortal Word
Counting Out Our Days

Sunlight Echoes Like
Memory Off a Full Moon
As Ripe Fields Slumber

Dough From My Own Hands
Fresh Baked, Sliced and Buttered Tastes
of Generations

First My Mother’s Bread
Baked Each Friday, Fragrance Fills
The House After School

And My Father’s Rolls,
Cinnamon and Butter and
Dough, Fried and Frosted

And, Like a Story,
Grandma’s Cookies, Soft, Sweet and
Rationed, Sneak Cookies

So My Bread Tastes of
Generations, Leavened With
Love and Memory

One Plus One, A Spark
Breathes Light and Warmth, Tone and Sense
Across All These Years

This Day, First Things First
Surprise, Delight, Gratitude

First Snow, A First Kiss
From Sky to Earth, A Promise
And a Sweet Story

Grief Unpacked Its Bags,
A Sudden and Unwanted Guest
With No Plans to Leave

Loss on Every Shelf
Sorrow in Every Drawer
Pain Beneath the Bed

We Could Not Quite Breathe
Wondering if That Moment
Might Not Ever End

But Time Does Still Pass
And Grief Turned Towards Us With
All Its Open Heart

And We Also Found
Among the Sorrow and Loss
A Shining Honor

The Consolations
Of Shared Memories, the Breath
Of Persistent Love

So It Turns Out That
This Life is not Perfect and
Grief is not a Guest

But Our Souls do Rise
To Every Occasion and
Our Hearts Will Reach Out

And We Will Carry
Honor, Memory, and Love
As We Find Our Way

It’s Not Quite Foggy
The Far Lake Shore Softened Like
Memories With Time
