  • 2016 Poetry Prize Entry: Community : Of Stars and Fire

    Stars and Fire
    Moving Swiftly Through Us All
    Dust and Breath
    Connect the Tissues of life
    I can feel the hum inside
    Hum of the energy that binds us
    I can feel the fire inside each person
    Burning with a purpose
    Burning with the meaning
    Of what it is to be alive
    Everyone has a rhythm that they follow
    Thoughts and feelings; ideas and ideals
    Things they hold true to their hearts
    We are all part of a network
    We exist in the same planet together
    Interconnected by our shared existence
    Each perspective is unique
    Yet we shape each other
    We become who we are
    Because of our experiences that we share
    We are the same dust and elements
    From the star that we depend on
    The hums within each person
    Synchronize to create the song of the earth
    At least that is what I see
    When I look upon the ocean of faces
    Passing me by, as I hear the individual melodies
    Resonating within their souls
    It is this feeling of shared existence
    That has given me a sense of belonging
    Among each unique perspective
