someday a fairy tale

fairy tale

someday ravens will not fall blinded from the sky and fish will not die suddenly from a grenade thrown in a pond
someday nine year old girls will not be shot to death at supermarkets
someday boys will not come back from afghanistan with missing parts because there won't be a war there at all
someday we won't have to worry about the carcinogenic chemicals in children's birthday cupcakes because they will be outlawed
someday the pit bulls will no longer be overbred and then caged and then killed
someday no one will cut off a dog's ears in order to make it a better fighter
someday the beautiful women who come to sit in my living room will stop hacking at their bodies with their thoughts
someday cancer will be obsolete and a word that does not make friends run from friends and terror vanquish love

someday all of the missing souls i have been seeking will come back to me in some form or anther knowing we will always be reunited
someday i will be able to tell my lover all of my secrets and he will look at me with desire and tenderness and not with pity
someday i am going to be able to show him every dark cavern and every rose quartz palace inside of me and he will not be afraid of any of it
someday we will all learn that death is not the problem, not living is
someday when we kiss the chains will turn to dust the briars will disintegrate and the blind will open their eyes and see
the blackbirds soar

  2. Yes, someday -- and the more we share these thoughts the closer those moments come.

    So beautiful.

    We've been craving your words.

    Happy New Year, Francesca. '11 is the year that Someday is Realized.

  4. This missing soul seeks your friendship and has now reached out several times... I tried to save 179 oaks on an 11 acre meadow in Arcadia today by protesting but they went ahead and cut them down anyway. All those displaced dryads. Maybe people will welcome them into their hearts and homes. In Iceland they take the fairies seriously. Alcoa had to hire an expert to ensure their plant did not interfere with the elves there. Namaste, wonder-one.

  9. You amaze me....

    "someday the pit bulls will no longer be overbred and then caged and then killed
    someday no one will cut off a dog's ears in order to make it a better fighter"

    As an animal shelter employee and dog rescuer and long time fan of your books - I could not love this any less.
