Seeking Common Ground

The expanse of my backyard,

second story perspective

in the treetops,

blue sky peeking through.

Where are we headed?

Humanity at a crossroads,

at least in this country.

Turn from tv news

and the divisiveness of social media,

search for the comfort

of common ground.

Tired of dissent and political separation;

racism, sexism, and all the other isms.

Old ways of thinking and reasoning 

morph into an ill-defined paradigm.

What will save us from ourselves,

thrusting us into a new way of coalescing,

uniting us in appreciation, not hatred

of our differences?

Compassion, kindness, hopefulness, respect.

These are the seeds

free from the chains of politics.

Planted in fertile soil,

they nourish common ground.
