This wall of tall grasses
reminds me of the brave people in Iran
who are banding together,
bending without breaking,
moving in solidarity
with inspiring confidence
and heartfelt hope,
all in the name of freedom.
Their reality is unreal to me,
their uprising so uplifting.
I am moved to look around
and appreciate all the little things
that I am free
to have and be and do and say.
Let freedom ring.
