Systematic Seismology

the man on the mountain
survives tremors of change      
that others cannot feel      
     
he watches smoke rise    
from its gutted belly    
to extract fossil fuel      
and blood diamonds    
     
but remains steadfast       
in prayer and meditation      
     
he does not desire vengeance    
on hatred and selfish greed...    
     
instead he prays for wisdom    
to permeate each spirit      
shift their paradigm      
from taking to receive      
     
because that's what wisdom does...    
affords grace a chance      
to alter ignorance      
     
before the whole mountain       
caves, destroying everything     
~      
     
badmalthus (Harry Rout)    
Harry is one of the most spiritual writers on the board.  He relates to world politics, economic injustice, and human rights from a wise perspective that permeates readers into thinking twice about their own self-judgments. I am honored to know him as a friend and poet, and highly recommend his works.
