It was dark and and it was raining cats and dogs.
Traffic came to a complete standstill in my city tonight.
I took the ring road and tried to get into town from the other side.
Driving downtown I saw a woman with a headscarf
And a little boy standing on the sidewalk, waiting to cross the street.
I braked and halted for them to cross over.
In the shine of my headlights
The boy waved jubilantly his hands.
The woman nodded her head and smiled happily.
So why don’t we just pause and halt for each other every once in a while?
The world would be so much more beautiful this way.
I have always thought of packlife in terms of dominance and submission.
But now I know that deep bonds of friendship and brotherhood
Are far more important.
It is like the story of Ismail and Isaac:
Working together from a tiny cornerstone
They might build Gods Kingdom of Peace.
