dear Jacob... resurrecting the will to survive... knowing that you can lose many things, but the will to love remains within our soul. Seeds will be planted and new flowers grow. "A tree grows in Brooklyn" can inspire. truly, Pat

thank you, Jimmy,
Indeed we are killing the world and one another ad nauseam; love for the planet and human kind seems in short supply so to resurrect it would be amazing. But I doubt the will is there to do so given the atrocities that occur on a day to day basis. A senryu to ponder Jacob.
