what weather we’re having today


Prompt: After listening to Sam Cooke’s “A Change is Gonna Come,” write about a personal or global change you want to see in the world. What are the small steps that we could take toward making that change? What would the world look like if it changed in this way?

what weather we’re having today

Sherry Stuart-Berman 

I want to see annihilation (of addiction).
I want to see healing (of trauma).
I want to see the wide, mighty heavens

crack open; rain down peace--
soak us all, through and through
with love and respect and joy--

just buckets and buckets,
until we have to look up,
open our umbrellas

and invite our neighbor 
to step under it.
