Peace for the Soul

A common space for harmonic peacemakers

I am dragging something out of my poetry closet to share (again) with each and all, a small contribution in words to healing the harm brought on by one arrogant fool. Let us all pray together for peace, understanding, and unity in diversity that reveals us as both one and many. -david

 

ALL FLOWERS

 

All tongues
that have hymned God
are beautiful.
All places
sanctified to the worship of One
are beautiful.

 

All races
all deeds done
all faces that have shone with love
shine
and are beautiful.

 

Harsh world
turn not away
into the hour of adversity
but flower
into God’s maturity.

 

All flowers…all flowering
is beautiful.

As I wear myself out,

Following the footsteps of God, 

I am grateful for all

That caused me to turn around.

No Room for Hate.

 

There is no room within my heart

for revenge, fire or hate

there is no room within my mind

for any thoughts like these.

 

I cannot find the words to say

just how it is I feel

but I know from deepest hurt

I must forgiveness find.

 

The hurt that’s been done to us

cuts sore like a knife,

but we must not, repay in kind

what has been done to us.

 

Instead we must try and find

the way that is so hard,

and reach out our loving hands

to find some friendship now.

 

There can be no more healing thing

than opening wide our eyes

and seeing that most other folk

are really just like us.

Beautiful.  I would say all flowering is divine.  All these religious people getting all up tight by the actions of dip sticks, shows up one very important question, who are they giving their power to??

Beauty and offence is in the eye of the beholder.

NOT JUST US"
