Vitality of Peace

Alex Kormann, a recent graduate of Wayne Hills High School, where I teach literatrue and philosophy, is a talented, talented photographer. A day or two ago, Alex posted a few of his photos on his Facebook page. One of them urged me to write. I share here what was written.

A Lesson

Fog settles
on the black

as heavily as silence.

A swan
bows her head

the still heft,

through the grey

as a star
flecks deep night.

Trees gather
on the shore

to share
their histories,

but today,
a sage,

the swan
turns away,

the vitality of peace.
