a humble ode to PEACE
may colorful quilts be woven with careful, even attention.
may children stare in awe of life-size dinosaurs.
may airplanes practice their speedy magic in the sky.
may brave, adept men re-roof old houses.
may grocers take care of their heavenly fruits and vegetables.
may street-sweepers take time to smoke cigarettes.
oh, may peoples of thousands of cultures and colors drink from one cup of love and join in dancing celebration!!
may there be so long a time of peace
that swords will rust into their hilts...
and will not be drawn
