Blog Blast for Peace!


It is not exactly a peaceful world.
Chicky, the chico tree, complains of the ants.
Yvon, the avocado tree, wants a trim always.
Troy, the lizard, wants to jump and cling to me
and I get startled and shoo him off!
My alpha dog Sumo hates noisy onlookers.
His pup Sweepy hates it when his Popsy is angry
so Sweepy barks with him!
MrLeach loves to hang around but is told
that he can not to stick to any being!
But then, in the midst of the changing weather,
the flowers sing in perfect aria . . .
MrFrogsky joins for a croaky tune.
MrBirdsky loves to fly free and seek shelter
and feast on the fruits and sing to me!
And the stray cat gets a nibble on the roof.
And I, as the keeper of Heaven,
and the caretaker of anything and everything
loud and noisy, fragrant and beautiful,
slimy and scary, fluffy and hug-able,
declare this sanctuary as mine.
And in its myriad of scents, sounds
quirks and unending joy
I revel in it
in peaceful comfort.

My world called Heaven.
Peace is its second name.
