WHERE IS PEACE/imaginary gardens with real toads tuesday platform



Where is peace

On a stormy night

Bombs exploding

Lightening flashing


My heart is tender

But afraid

I feel my way with

My fingertips


Thunder crashing

I cover my ears

Water seeps

Under the door


We were warned

Run away

Run away

But where will we go


Perhaps as long

As we can imagine peace

Even when the world does not

We can strive for it


A quiet morning

No ill will toward anyone

Even the birds are still sleeping

No one stirs


And yet the very next moment

Everything can change

The future is unknown

Perhaps peace only comes

In the in between
