One Last Wish
By Don Iannone

You have
...one last wish.
......Make it now.
.........Wish for healing
.............in the world.
................Wish for peace
....................in the world.
.......................Wish for love
...........................in our hearts
..............................to lift us all above
.................................the cleavages
....................................the differences
.......................................the fighting
..........................................the suffering
.............................................and all else
................................................that destroys
...................................................the foundation
......................................................of our existence.

...................It could all end.

Nice one Don... really creative...

One Last Wish... for all beings to awaken to thier true nature...

hmmmm... maybe that is what will happen when "it" does end...

Like when a play ends at the theatre... the actors remove thier costumes and stop playing thier roles... and go home...

Don Iannone said...

Great thoughts Kathleen. I share your last wish.

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake - Rabindranath Tagore

Thats my wish for the world, for everyone.
Lovely poem Don.....all noble wishes..wish they all come true

don,

now,
this old globe is very sick,
humanism is shivering,

Don Iannone said...

ufukhati...thanks. Agree and we must do what we can individually and together to bring about Her healing.

well done, don!
and yes, humanity has been abusing mother earth for too long... everyone should try to make up for whatever we can...

Don Iannone said...

Thanks Polona. I agree.

Imemine said...

We should try to live with it. And make the most of it. And not add fuel to it.
