How does a mustard seed appear before us?
As a mustard seed.
It feels the tree eager to burgeon,
And comparing itself to what it must show,
It knows the truth.

Juneteeth

The eagle soars to survey and seek its prey, as I ride
Peacefully building a future where my kids will be eagles
To pray the prayers that freed my heart, to dream the dream
That Washington, Lincoln and Martin Luther King dream, and
Put the whip back into its sheath.
