Call to Midwives All Dedicated to Valarie Kaur*




Call to Midwives All
Dedicated to Valarie Kur *

time to shoulder the burden of birth
of heart, soul and hope
time to march on this soft earth
of all creatures, creed, and life
time to cope, to touch, to give,
to reach toward the light ...
time to shoulder the burden of birth
of this more perfect nation world -
struggling to be born not from the
"darkness of the tomb" but from the
"darkness of the womb"
"breathe then
 push... "*


Valarie Kaur is a brilliant and wonderfully articulate young attorney activitist - 
her words at a particular multi-cultural NewYear's gathering left me breathless ..

Coming through the fog

Morning Fog 







Coming through the fog

Ah 
my siren 
felt feeble – 
the plumped 
preen lean – 
yet 
now in spite 
of this single stab 
seeped fulfillment 
cheat – I shake 
the sodden to leap -
truth emblazoned 
on my soul – 
to climb the 
mountain – 
flee fear 
hold tight 
to my
chest 
the reap 
of all 
that is 
righteous- 
past to  
future – 
see them – 
feel them 
feel us -
standing- 
shimmering, 
warming chilled blood - 
bolstering burgeoning 
this ever unquenchable happening of hope 
gathering – here, there, everywhere,
coming through the fog, coming through the fog
