Mindlovemisery's Menagerie Anne Worner Peace
Anne Worner “Peace”


Flowers from within


Is not a t-shirt on a mannequin


Rests in the heart


Does not tear apart


Envelops a soul


Must be our goal

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.

  1. oh my God, I love this line: “Peace/ Is not a t-shirt on a mannequin”–I didn’t go there but I’m glad you did. That line really makes it clear what peace is not and in doing so, makes the lines that come after it, which define what peace is, all the more stark and powerful. They hit like stones and they should! We need peace.

  2. a beautiful rhyming scheme. peace is not an advertisement, either. beautiful line, not a slogan on a mannequin, like those Che Guevara t-shirts – psychopathic revolutionary to boot.

  3. Thanks for sharing your unique response to the photo prompt Carol 🙂

    Simple, effective, powerful and resilient. Offers reflection and hope in a world seemingly mad.

    Cheers ~ Pat
