The drone of a dead generation

Stabs of ephemeral emotion
Shoot from head to heart

Thoughts and prayers,
Thoughts and prayers,
Thoughts and prayers…

We offer a moment
Of fleeting attention—
The violence is senseless.

Publically we express
Our shallow empathy

Thoughts and prayers,
Thoughts and prayers,
Thoughts and prayers…

Like the dull din of a thousand bees,
This response is standard.

Do we think?
Do we pray?

We post.

An Epiphany in Spokane and Moscow

My Christian denomination, along with some others, celebrates the time between January 6 and Ash Wednesday as the season of Epiphany. In common use an epiphany is a sudden moment of awareness — an "ah ha" moment. Etymologically, an epiphany is a shining (“-pha’’-) forth (“epi-“), a manifestation of light. In Christian tradition, this shining forth is the coming of Jesus into the world, a coming through which we all may shine.
