Blessing / Poem by Coline Fairless
Written for the Green Divas Radio Show in May 2011
May we be planted by the waters,
A planting so deep, our roots sink down into the rich moist earth until we stand on solid rock
May our minds and hearts know the intimate touch of the wind, our faces the heat and healing power of the sun,
Until we know ourselves as one with all life.
If I Found Water on Mars by Kerri McCaffrey
If I found water on Mars,
the red crust
of Martian soil—
with my NASA
(as if lancing some boil)—
the red sands white—
my nation watching
from Mothership Earth
like a hungry pride
as their domestic lion turned wild
initiated her first kill
the media lauding,
“Isn’t she valiant!”
I would kneel and pray
for that planet
(as a compassionate alien),
like some astronaut priest
beseeching God’s mercy
on that place’s soul
and other points
The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
