Blog Blast for Peace 2011

I said this before
and I will say it again
for in my Heaven
it is not always rosy
the sky opens and closes
with searing heat that makes the dogs pant
or with humid rains after a hot morning
or drizzles all night that floods the city . . .
the mosquitoes breed in numbers
and they get reprimanded . . .
(yes, I take the authority to call them off!)
the lizard Troy gets warned not to jump at me
every chance he gets . . .
the millipede get accidentally trampled
and so are the delicate plants . . .
but then I get kissed and hugged
by plants, animals and people
and this is what makes my world
one of peace . . .

To live, rule and let go.
To snap and hug and throw worries in the wind
only to repeat the same day in day out.
Everything is forgiven.
Everything harmful is forgotten
and allowed to pass.

I am in a topsy-turvy world
and I am at peace.

I love the way you used different languages in your peace globe. Peace be with you today and every day.

nice composition the above.
I thought your world is more beautiful, with all these flowers around, till I read about the mosquitoes.

Important is that you are at peace.

Have a great weekend!

Finding your own peace is the very best place to begin.

I wish you peace, today and every day.

Truly universal posts. I was moved by each one. You made me realize that I need to remember that topsy-turvy can still be peaceful.
You are indeed a poet. Do you know that? Indeed.
