We Walk - Poem by Hakeem Rahim

In the spirit of Cousteau,
carrying bags and all-
4 degrees Fahrenheit plus wind chill
but 6 degrees of separation,
is what detaches us from your humanity.
breathe God’s child.
We all God’s children,
yet the saved pass by
on this cold night.

    Hakeem, the 6 degrees of separation expressed as a poetic pause; indeed we all pass by saved on this cold night! A powerful poem for thinkers... Rgds, Ivan (Report)Reply
