MAY TANKAS

Kent_State_massacre 1970

(In Memory of May 4, 1970 Kent State Massacre):

Yin and Yang of May

Maypole dancing then mourning

Long ago Kent State

Seems like only yesterday

Shocked by innocents’ murders

May flowers will grow

We will laugh and sing again

But what comes this month?

This month of beauty and love

No holiday for violence…
