whispers in the trees.

         could you hear the rushing
                  the whistling through the grass
            have you lost the senses that have preserved you
                   generation over generation?

                recall your warrior, spirit –
              you feel the drums, but can you taste them?

       ar scáth a chéile a mhaireann na daoine.
                  but we cannot thrive without
                the beat of our hearts

                            one hand takes
                          another gives
                               but when do you use both?
                      when it becomes too much –
                                 and then you grab the torch and sword

Reading to be paired with:
