morning glory

Carpe Diem #721, priest and morning glory


Oh, the glory of a spring morning!  Whether it is cloudy, sunny or somewhere in between, it is all glorious!  What more could one want than to awaken to a new day, to the rising sun, to a chance to just be alive.  This is such a first world, retired person point of view.  What of the folks in Nepal, or the families of victims of disease or violence?  How do their days feel?  Overwhelmed would be a first thought for the Nepalese people.  Utter hopelessness.  Dejection.  Sadness.  Grief.  Anger.  Fear.  Not sure there are enough words to describe the emotions seen on news reels or read in blog posts.

The simplest of the earth's provisions, water, food and shelter, are needed by humans. The Sherpa community's devastation and distress is documented here.  Slowly the organizations begin to move the gears of governments to provide needed aid.  Some aid as simple as sitting with mothers' awaiting the cremation of their teen age sons is provided by a stranger.  There in lies the one ray of hope, humans actively caring for other humans.

wandering priests pause
prayers neath a flowered arbor
mourning - glory
