New Migration Equilibriums Time Shift Established

play migrations march
is movement people
geographic shifting

trickles streams rivers
shifting inhabiting
new climates lands

interacting into new languages
cultures transformation expectations
search out new hope better futures

for self children generations born to birth come
as peoples decision forced migrate mix mingle?
go forth inhabit earth in new locations climates

shaping new possibilities destinies
as movement migrants misunderstood
marry into new social plays families

in prosperous times
or scape goat are abused
blamed for ill harvests

economic crisis disharmony
in nature poor crop yields floods
in prosperity more often inclined

to be welcomed prosperity
absorbed love friendships
children toddle cute beloved

bridge race language divides
bitter souls in need to differentiate
claim superiority old resident

accepted established pecking
order ruffles new flight feathers?
egos are word stroked bruised

as new equilibriums
are time shift established
as cultural diversity

new norm accepted

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
