After the ethereal wind stopped
and the ocean receded,
I learned
fences have no meaning.
Keeping people divided,
really does not work.
Walls,
between neighbors,
get knocked down.
After earthquakes,
hurricanes,
floods,
fires,
lines disappear.
Walls fall,
fences break
down.
People step
up,
over boundaries.
They help,
reach out.
We should know this.
History proves it so.
Fences,
they really are imaginary.
