Ponderings from a Procrastinating Prognosticator

WRITING – PEACE POEM

Posted by samatwitch on March 21, 2012

 

Today is World Poetry Day and a woman whose blog I follow suggested visitors to her site add a couple of lines in the comments to make a peace poem.  As usual, I couldn’t keep it to two lines.  😉 I’ve also added a few more.

PEACE

Thoughts of peace are often hidden in our tempestuous world

But seeds have been planted.

Tended by gardeners of all races,

Like hope, peace sprouts unexpectedly

In countries throughout the world

Even where it is dangerous to have such thoughts.

But they flourish anyway.

 

Delicate buds with hardy roots

Struggling to reach the bright light of promise,

Fertilised by dreams of a future free of war and suffering,

And supported by hundreds, thousands, millions

With similar thoughts, hopes and dreams.

  1. Two lines? That’s not even a haiku! No wonder you went further! 🙂

    What I like best is that every line carries forward the sense of hope through the imagery and phrasing. It’s infused with that optimism, all through. Well done, Sams.
