HIPPIE PLEDGE


i-pledge-allegiance

I found this pledge via the blog Russell Ray Photos and wanted to use it.  One of the comments was that it was an old hippie pledge, if so, it is still a good pledge today.  My thanks to Russell for sharing it.  He has a great blog showcasing his excellent photos that often feature Southern California and a cat named Zoey.  Peace and love to all!

A POEM FOR THE NIGHT…


Waterview

The Peace of Wild Things
by Wendell Berry

When despair for the world grows for me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake rests,
in his beauty on the water,
and the great heron feeds.

I come into the peace of wild things,
who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief,
I come into the presence of still water,
and I feel above me the dayblind stars,
waiting with their light,
for a time, I rest in the grace of the world,
and am free.
