Resistance

“Sometimes there’s truth in old clichés.

There can be no real peace

without justice.

And without resistance

there will be no justice.”

— Arundhati Roy

heads tucked under

eyes closed to world around

blocking light of change

* Mute Swans aren’t really mute, but their hoarse trumpet or bugle call doesn’t carry like those of other species; they also snort or hiss when disturbed.

** Haiku: a Japanese poem of seventeen syllables, in three lines of five, seven, and five, traditionally evoking images of the natural world
