A family has moved into the house in my back yard:
Mr. and Mrs. are setting up housekeeping.
Sometimes, I’m sure they’re arguing!
Before long, there will be kids:
Little wren chicks.
They’ll stay until they can fly; then the whole family will move away.
If you read through my blogs, it might become evident that I have a passion for building community. Strong towns and neighborhoods are crucial for our well being, especially now, when prejudice, threat of deportation and the possibility of having vital services cut loom so darkly. That has inspired the following:
Coming together as citizens;
Overcoming differences and fear;
Making friends out of strangers
Moves us to be more clear:
Unity builds strength and safety;
No one can bully us then.
It truly is impossible
To turn against the one
You have come to know and love as a friend.
