World Peace~Cascade

World Peace
World Peace

Weapons were silenced

A hush fell over the Earth

World peace was a reality

~

On battlefields every where

Soldiers began to sing prayers

Weapons were silenced

~~

Refusing to fight anymore

For lands that were to be shared

A hush fell over the Earth

~~~

Rushing across the fields

Anxious to know their enemies

World peace was a reality

They studied war no more

“In the spirit of Guy Fawkes Night, I call upon you to write a poem which celebrates something that never happened.  I’ll let you interpret that however you want.  Feel free to get as creative as you want…maybe even have yourself a cheerful bonfire to boot!”

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  2. what a beautiful sentiment! during Christmas 1914 there was a brief spontaneous truce by allies and axis soldiers who did like what your poem described. soon the generals told their officers to shoot those soldiers who didn’t pick up their rifles and start shooting again. one day true world peace will happen.
