Aftermath of Peace

Ripped and abandoned
Lay the drums of war,
Beating hearts sounded
At the dawn of peace,
Peace sewed tight land
That war once tore,
Hearts on the mend
As the fires cease,
Reverberations felt
To the Earth’s core,
Giving inhabitants
Of life a new lease.

    Words, collectively spoken and shared, have power. Yours are on that caliber. Happy Peace Day to you, Shainbird.

    Speechless as I am whenever I am reading your poetry, I just take my hat off. Your poetry has a life-changing power.
