The Cellist

We are entering a time warp
it’s August sixth
We are now time travelling
runneling throuth tunnels of time
Until we arrive at that terrible day
August Sixth, nineteen forty five
bombing a complete civilian population
into oblivion
people who were humans walking upright
in the flash of a nanosecond
turn from human form
into puddles
before our very eyes
etched as shadows into the concrete sidewalks
completely evaporated
until only their shadows are sandblasted into the cement
And Dear friend
The Shadow…
KNOWS
Japanese Nichirin Monks
now sixty some years later
criss CROSS America
in orange and red saffron robes
incessantly beating a drum
as they WALK
back and forth across Continent North America
chanting
Om Na Myo Ho Renge Kyo
Om Na Myo Ho Renge Kyo
Om Na Myo Ho Renge Kyo
Eternal Peace Flame at Hiroshima
has a Peace Pole
it has now been planted
in many places around our Beloved Water Planet
in the last thirty years
Planted in every small hamlet village and town
On The Way
In Many Peace Walks
for Global Nuclear Disarmament
Dear Friend,
Yes, it has passed through here just recently
in June
Go down and do a vigil at your Peace Pole
for one hour of Silence
Reflection
wherever you may Be
Singing
May Peace Prevail Upon Earth
May Peace Prevail Upon Earth
May Peace Prevail Upon Earth
Dear Friend
Plant a Peace Pole
In Your Heart
Singing this Song
Up On Lake Michigan
Near South Haven
on its crystal white sands beaches
A Young Japanese Man
a Musician
silently
is in
Presence
Playing
a Composition of Peace
in Rhapsody
It is the
Song of God
He Sings
I AM
The Cellist
AHO!
