Quote-Poem!

This comes from my friend Stefan, president of the Sensory Awareness Foundation.
What a strong, powerful statement by Hanns Dieter Husch, this is!  
(Visualize two dots over the "u".  I am not computer competent enough to place them there.)



When the soldiers come,
Lure them onto the roof of the dove
Lure them into the nest of the swallow
Lure them into the cave of the lioness
Lure them into the forest of the deer.
Approach them with open hands full of bread, and salt, and fruit,
and wine -
so that they loose they way in the brushwood of your virtues;
so that they get lost in the maze of your friendliness.
Let them be amazed.
Let their generals and presidents be ashamed.
Let their henchman run aground.
Be a lowland of courtesy
Intelligence be your weapon
Patience be your strength
Love be your narrative
Your silence be your victory - so that the governors will wonder. 


Hanns Dieter Husch, 1925- 2005
