standing

we stand on bones
we stand on ideas
we stand on the bones of ideas
grown & gone to seed
buried (planted)
watered with blood
& harvested

such bitter fruit
staining
our hands

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
