“What did you do when……..”

A message from one of our board members: To all of us who do so much to save our world… excerpted from a poem… and revised to refer to our grandchildren, not great great grands… fear we don’t have that long: 

Hieroglyphic stairway – A Poem by  Drew Dellinger
it’s 3:23 in the morning
and I’m awake
because my grandchildren
won’t let me sleep
my grandchildren ask me in dreams
what did you do while the planet was plundered? 
what did you do when the earth was unraveling? 
surely you did something
when the seasons started failing?
as the mammals, reptiles, birds were all dying?

What kind of a world are we leaving for our children and grand children?
did you fill the streets with protest 
when democracy was stolen? 
what did you do once you knew? …
I’m a hieroglyphic stairway
in a buried Mayan city
suddenly exposed by a hurricane
a satellite circling earth
finding dinosaur bones
in the Gobi desert
I am telescopes that see back in time
I’m the boundary of time
soul encountering soul
and tongues of fire
it’s 3:23 in the morning
and I can’t sleep
because my grandchildren
ask me in dreams
what did you do while the earth was unraveling?


I’m contacting many organizations and agencies here in Napa County about co-sponsoring a regenerative ag/holistic management forum and field seminars.  Got to save this planet NOW!
