take a breath


Namaste’



I’m writing this Sunday evening

my face still wet with tears

i just returned from the vigil

at the Mosque

 a vigil for those Muslims who

were slaughtered

while praying in

New Zealand


we frequently meet like this 

vigils

we met only a short time ago after the

shootings at the synagogue  in Pa.

Jews murdered

while praying


again


after the school shootings

across the country

after each one

we gathered


we talk of love conquering hate

the only thing that ever has


we talk of standing up

when we hear or see hatred


we are at war

this is what i am asking


for a moment


take a mindful breath

right now

relax your shoulders

release the tension from behind your eyes

take another breath


this is not a Christian breath

nor

a Jewish breath

nor

a Muslim breath

nor

a Hindu breath


this is a Universal Breath


remember we are one

there are no others


those who commit these atrocities

have forgotten this

they have turned their back

on the Light

on God, Ram, Allah, Jesus, Yahweh,

Buddha, Krishna, Shiva

we are ONE


take that breath
