Looking Back…

I wrote this four years ago.  You may think it naive but, for many reasons, my belief in its spirit was renewed last night.  Or, to quote another Beatle, “You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.”

Beautiful Day

I wake up on November 5th, 2008
And look out the window.
Dark clouds loom overhead
But my eyes see a bright blue sky.

I open my front door
And walk into the morning.
A chilly rain beats down
But my skin basks in the glow of a blazing sun.

In the words of Harrison:
It’s been a long cold lonely winter
But here comes the sun
And I say it’s all right.

Is this possible?
Can we as a people change
A bitter frost
Into a warm summer breeze?

Yes we can.
