Warriors of Words    by Birgitta Jonsdottir (http://nzpoetsonline.homestead.com/bj7.html)

listen poets of the world
your words are mighty
your vision is clear
war is war is war
never peace
never healing
if war

the oracle of history speaks
through your words
through your courage
fight with the pen
with your vision
but most importantly
open the space between space
the world between worlds
between your words

the world is not simple
it is not even one
it is in layers of understanding
create that empty space
of understanding
by heart on fire
by compassion
by being unbearably honest

create that space for free thinking
curling through your words
to hit in the heart of hearts
like a bolt of enlightenment

you are the carrier of the flame
the favorite of the muse
the warrior of words
truth truth truth
seek it speak it

the bush is on fire
illusions run deep
seek speak the truth
and hope shall remain
peace shall remain
in the s p a c e

dedicated to all the people that took part in making the Book of Hope & the
World Healing Book possible with their work and with their spirit

Thanks for this beautiful post!
B.J. is a great strong woman. I've heard her speacking when she came in my country in Cesena, last year, and I felt she really belives in what she says, with heart and actions. She's one of the persons that are working for a change in the world. "Brava Brigitta!"
