And people stayed home

‘And people stayed home and read books and listened and rested and exercised and made art and played
and learned new ways of being
and stopped  and listened deeper
someone meditated someone prayed someone danced someone met their shadow

and people began to think differently
and people healed and in the absence of people who lived in ignorant ways,
dangerous, meaningless and heartless, even the earth began to heal

and when the danger ended and people found each other grieved for the dead people
and they made new choices  and dreamed of new visions
and created new ways of life and healed the world completely
just as they were healed themselves’


by Kathleen O’Meara (1869)
