The World is Singin’ its Blues

guitarboy2              Guitar Boy by June Perkins

The world is singin’ its blues
askin’ for a bit of time to heal
askin’ why it’s so hard to feel
that nothin’ we do is gonna make
peace be real

askin’ for a DJ who understands
the need for peace
who can give us some
musical release
to sing out tears
dress them in a parent’s tears.

The world is ringin’ out its questions
why, oh why’s a piece of land
or your religion
something to kill or die for
and why are people so quick
to tie their fate to
those noose of hate?

askin’ for a DJ who can change the down beat
into an upbeat
bring some kind of optimism into play
dress that sorrow
in a technicolour tomorrow.

The world is singin’ its blues
askin’ for a bit of time to heal
askin’ why it’s so hard to feel
that nothin’ we do is gonna make
peace be real

World Peace~Cascade

WritersDream9

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

Peace Within~Writing Course 201 Day 10

WritersDream9

Peace Peace

Searching in the sand for my peace

Rhythmically etching your fine lines

O how you trace the smooth and crease

Your humble simplicity surely shines

~

Will I find my pleasure in your grains

Meditatively refining my point of view

Your quality of serenity still remains

To face the world refreshed and new

~

My fingers notice your rough texture

Bringing my awareness to the now

In your specks I have found a treasure

Concentrating on my truth I do avow

~

The world can no longer me contain

You have lifted me high above the pain

Peace Day Service in Hereford Cathedral

Everybody Means Something

Candles

Yesterday Hereford Cathedral hosted its first Peace Day Service to observe today’s International Day of Peace. The service was organised by the newly formed Herefordshire Interfaith Group.

The United Nations’ (UN) International Day of Peace is celebrated on September 21 each year to recognize the efforts of those who have worked hard to end conflict and promote peace. The International Day of Peace is also a day of ceasefire – personal or political. On this day, also known as Peace Day, people around the world take part in various activities and organize events centered on the theme “peace.” This was Hereford’s offering.

The Canon Chancellor of Hereford Cathedral & Venerable Tenzin Choesang welcomed everyone to the peace day service.

PD start

The service began with a simple candle lighting ceremony where a member of each faith lit a candle as the choir chanted ‘Kindle a flame to lighten the dark and take all…

The Poet Sings of a Poet’s Tree

Ripple Poetry

What kind of tree is your
poet’s tree?

Is it boab or oak
paperbark or willow?

Does it dance with Mandela
mediate with Mahatma?

Is it a haven for
Maya Angelou’s caged birds?

Does your tree sing
of how to
make a walking stick
through pain
with words to make the feet
lighter?

Does it encase your feet in
shoe bark
to travel on the heated ground
of despair
through the cold of ignorance’s
ice
help you to slide to the leaves of
peace?

How many in your poet’s family
tree went to war and
created odes to soldier’s
who bloodied lay
at the base of this tree
– lost?

Will the nightingale
sing from the branches
of your poet’s tree
guide you
into the heart of things
-take you out beyond this side
of a worm hole
into the galaxy where peace
birds fly?

What kind of tree is…
