(ALTERNATE TITLE: How to lower the swords states and non-state peoples lift against each other, how to stop learning war anymore–hints from the birds and their flight feathers for how to repair the world by pairing rather than parrying. (I think the concept of Tikkun olam speaks to this too.)
Lift. Forward motion. Direction. Balance.
A bird gets it from her wing & tail flight feathers
which, although long, stiff, & asymmetrical,
are symmetrically paired.
My yoga practice & cello group
involve a pairing focus that promotes a flowing harmony
& gives me a new slant on what it may take to rePAIR this wobbly world
& bend the arc of events towards peace.
Mayhap give it lift, forward motion, direction, balance.
