Red, white, and blue

White clouds, blue sky,
and red stripes of dawn
have put down roots
into this earth
spinning
out of control.

My flag cascades
from each pole,
with a rush of dazzling light,
spreading peace, as if fragrance;
its miracle will soothe the souls
for the crucial communion
of continents.

A show of mercy,
its tenderness urges
a presence of heart
and mind;
my flag waves
to let the breeze
carry its
healing breath
over us.
