the power of peace

The tumultuous world
Will always blow us
This way and that
With lies that birth prophets

Who stand tall
Because the winds
Make them
Live strong in their truth

Sometimes i feel like
The crickets and aspens
Who sing with the purity
Of their whole bodies

It’s the small truth
I offer the world
It’s my refuge

Like walking thru the halcyon
Of autumn
These fleeting weeks
When the sky shows her true heart

Lifting the veil to a dazzling sapphire
Enchanted with fairy dust and gold
Sudden scarlet piercing
The embracing blue

And i
Breathing the peace
Of feeling
Soft amber under my feet

The gentle coppery drift
Of changing seasons
Like promises
Rustling to become
