Exercises on a theme: Belonging

by revbillcook

In this circus tent

all sorts of strange things belong:

clowns, acrobats, me.


Does the trembling fly

caught in the thin web belong

now to the spider?


Let us honor vows

spoken when we were so young

now that we are old.


One small blue planet

our home in this universe –

can’t we live in peace?


The circle of love –

it must include everyone –

or it is too small.
