A Wish for 2021: “We are the Ones”

A poem for New Year’s Day…
Sunrise over America
“And who will join this standing up
and the ones who stood without sweet company
will sing and sing 
back into the mountains and
if necessary
even under the sea
we are the ones we have been waiting for”
June Jordan  (i.e. one of my heroes)
