And the people stayed HOME.
And read books, and listened, and rested,
and exercised, and made arte, and played games,
and learned new ways of being, and were still.
And listened more deeply.
Some dedicated, some prayed, some
danced, some met their shadows.
And the people began to think differently. images,
And the people healed. And, in the absence of
people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless
and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.
And when the danger passed, and the people
joined together again, their grieved their losses,
and made new choices, and dreamed new
images, and created new ways to live and heal
the earth fully, as they had been HEALED.
