PEACE HAS SOME QUESTIONS FOR YOU


Good morning… a little sippy the coffee.  AAAHHH…  Here we are on Martin Luther King Jr. day, tho’ I honored him in poetry yesterday, I give his spirit a wave and hold each day to the dream of human compassion and the spread of kindness with peace everywhere and in everything.

 **********************

If peace isn’t in my heart

Will it find itself in my home

At my work, in my garden

With my friends, my family?

Will it find itself at the edges

And corners and center of me?

Is there Peace in the stories I tell

Of me and other, and them, and that

As I share my days,  my hours

My moments in chattered exchange?

Has Peace found me amidst the

Sad, the lonely, the grief, the despair,

The lost, the wretched, the ugly, 

The stupid, the idiots, the killers,

The rapists, the politicians, the dark evil?

Is Peace only selected for some things

And not those other ‘things’ that

Batter my edges and center and

Places of discomfort and anger?

If I can’t find Peace within all that

Do I really ‘give Peace a chance?’

Am I a Peace generator or lazy

In my peace, giving when it’s convenient, 

Or pretty, or easy, or a sweet puppy,

Or sad friend, or where my heart string

Gets pulled and I’m all soft and tender?

What when Peace is hard to give?

Can I give it then?  

Can you join me in giving it then?

Can we give ‘Peace a chance’?

  The stages of ‘4’; of matter, of structure,  of order…..Formless, Form, transform. again

What in your life feels formless and needs either transformation or a plan to bring it to order?

Isn’t it about time you took a leap of faith?

Can you trust that a mistake is you being highly creative and you can try again?

MARTIN KNEW


Martin knew 

We were all connected

Made from Creation’s same cloth

In different shapes and colours.

We came from the same clap of life

The same Garden of Eden

Adam’s Rib, and Eve’s love of apples

The same Cosmic Rumble

Of whirling pieces of planets

From outer space in all that Infinite

Maybe from a monkey, or smoke

or alien seed seeking a new home

We came to be here to live out a life

Live it out the best way possible

 

Martin knew  

That love and peace is a birth right

Togetherness makes us strong

Separation weakens and gives fear

He had a dream of our equality

of our shared Sun and Moonlight

Breathing the same air

Seeing our differences as strengths

Strengthening our sameness

He saw the Divine in my eyes

Knew that I am Creation’s wonder

Spirit everlasting, God’s child,

A mother’s greatest Love.

 

Martin knew

That differences made us stronger

A virgin birth, a Cosmic boom

A Pagan dance under a full moon night

A prayer to Mecca, A chant to Buddha

Believing nothing, believing everything

We’re here, we are connected,

He knew.

In ‘3’ there is the trinity, ‘2’ unites to bring forth another.  A birthing.  Creation unfolds.  Mother/Daughter/Crone,  Father/ Son/Holy Spirit,  Mother/Father/Child.  Within the ‘3’ is Inclusiveness, or exclusiveness.  There can be rejection in what has come forth from the exchange of ‘2’.  

 

As you consider a new perspective in life, what will you include or exclude?

AT the portal of the Universe, the invitation is to step through and connect with your divine self.  What does that divine self look and feel like?

Can you listen to what your heart’s desire calls you to create?
