Our children
offer clues

for what the answers
should be

to their questions
about love

and people
and the earth

but the spiral
of history

the tangle of
our doings over time

have landed us
too far

from the innocence
we need
to answer
at their level.

I am writing 30 Poems in November to support the Center for New Americans which provides English language classes, education support and legal services assistance for immigrants in Western Massachusetts. Please see my campaign page to support this cause. Thank you, Iz.
