It’s time for peace

It is time! I hear the call

From all corners of the globe.

I saw them breaking the wall

In Berlin. I hear peace chanting far East

In Tienanmen Square …over there

Rolling through the green hills

Of China over India and Afghanistan.

South the equator, brothers in new

South Africa, united under one nation.

Echoed in Tahrir Square in Egypt

Time square NY, Champs-Elysee Paris-

Everywhere good people getting together, in the face of evil

In the face of war.  Behold, I see the white dove

Spreading out her wings, searching for that

Green olive branch to land-weary and sad.

People are holding up their hands

Together, everybody chanting, all of them saying:

No more hate, no more discrimination.

Our Earth is aching and bleeding

Pleading for her children-Calling for

Peace. Peace. Peace for all.

  3. Hello! I am a fellow blogger on the Poets for Peace project. We are going to be published in Praxis Magazine On-Line, and I am assisting Neha from Forgotten Meadows to get your permission to publish your poem. You can either reply on her blog and leave your permission there, including your Name, name of your poems and something that says you give Praxis permission. It’s super cool because it will be published September 21 (International Peace Day). OR, you can email me the permission if that’s easier. writingwingsforyou@gmail.com
