Heralds of peace, contentment, delight,
pavers of yellow brick road, wizards of
sense of being your own Oz which so
happens to be the thread that runs
through us all, tensile, feather-light
spider web connects us, attaches us
one to the other, all-seeing eye of we,
where we hear harmony,
chorus of humanity,
feel, offer beloved belong
with agency and gratitude.
