This is a poem of comrades gathered together in the anti-war movement, standing together for creating real and lasting peace. To show for something as right as this while giving up illusions of control over outcomes, may be where hope is found at its center. Poydras Review has scheduled “Sacred Ground” to be published on July 15th this summer. Mark it on your calendar for reading this strong and lovely piece. I would love to know whether you agree with me as to the subtle magic of this poem.
