Overcome Through Understanding

woodpecker on a fence 2 april 23

The woodpecker spoke to me

about the sights around

there is hate and violence

many creatures bound


We spoke for awhile

 communication is the key

learning about each other

what is important to the bird and me


More alike than different

each with a family

exchanging ideas

give and take willingly


God gives us free will

choices each day to make

kindness and love

understanding to awake


Working together

to make the world a better place

overcoming fear and judgement

with God’s grace


Standing together

we shall overcome

living together is possible

from the old to the young


Praying today

for all in harm’s way

we are one in spirit

on this new day
