What’s so funny about Peace, Love and Understanding?
“The river is famous to the fish. / The loud voice is famous to silence, / which knew it would inherit the earth / before anybody said so.
The cat sleeping on the fence is famous to the birds / watching him from the birdhouse.
The tear is famous, briefly, to the cheek.
The bent photograph is famous to the one who carries it / and not at all famous to the one who is pictured.
—Naomi Shihab Nye

Be a person here. Stand by the river, invoke / The owls. Invoke winter, then spring.
Let any season that wants to come here to make its own / call. After that sound goes away, wait.
