On Easter-thinking of other worlds

April 24, 2011 “Poetry is plucking at the heartstrings, and making music with them.”
Dennis Gabor

Over the long weekend, we finally got to re-watch the movie "Kandahar", out some years ago, but because of the continual un-rest in the middle east, I wanted to see it again. Especially on this special Easter holiday, I still try to understand other cultures, other ways of being. Hence, the poem.

At Kandahar

I gazed long into the screen

Wanting to see into those hearts,

Into the secret places

That I know all women hold—

I wondered if there could ever be a bridge

To find between us—

And who would have to travel

The longest way

To reach the other?


  1. It would be nice to bridge those differences, wouldn't it? Happy Easter, friend!

  2. Thoughtful words. Discussed it on our ride home tonight after church. T'would be nice!


Having a conversation is a good thing!
