The New Colossus

In late meditation, I find myself hearkening back to the ‘Writers for Migrant Justice’ event I was fortunate enough to perform and read for. I find myself marinating on the words of the poem ‘The New Colossus’ by #emmalazarus
which can be found on our #statueofliberty
.
The news speaks of impeachment, potential war with Iran, cyber security threats, Australia on fire, John Bolton making a public statement, and on and on and on…
.
I reread the words to the poem as it is a flickering flame of hope on an extremely windy day.
.
This particular version of the text was presented by @black_rock_press as a limited edition printing. Digital editing allows for easier perusal of the artwork print.

About SIDEWAYS EIGHT

Being heard, stirred, and perhaps cured by life's many hidden images and the written-spoken word.
