True Unity

Rainbow Barb Ver Sluis
Barb Ver Sluis

The tempest has passed

Many clouds are dispersing

A rainbow appears at last

Sunshine breaks through

~

Robins chant in unison

Peace’s gentle hush settles

After the rage and confusion

Each voice is raised to heaven

~

Flowers of the field sway

Hearing their own music

Each in their own way

Symphony of true unity

~

Now that the tempest has passed

Bjorn Rudberg over at Poetics: War for Peace said:

“For poetics today I thought we would take up the challenge from the Pubtalk by Grace a few weeks ago. I remember that I said that peace is hard to write about. It is very much like writing about love. I often find that peace goes back to platitudes and trite. Everyone knows that peace is better than war, just like love is better than hate. But to really say such obvious things you have to challenge yourself, just like peace and love is hard work you have to stretch yourself….Use contrasts, use metaphors, use your senses smells, play on idioms. Use any form or any trick you like but make us long for peace not just hate war. Make me love peace, not just peacefulness. What’s the taste of peace, the smell, the color? Is peace of night or something brought by day? Remember contrasts, write in chiaroscuro, show attractiveness in light.”~Bjorn Rudberg

Looking forward to seeing you there!

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. we are all too familiar with the horrors of war. when true peace comes, it will come on the inside of each of us and on the outside to the whole world. this is what humanity wants, this is what humanity will have. a promise made, a promise kept.
