Be the Peace, Be the Love


The wind is loud enough,
Wailing its storms and
scattering its fury
in our midst.
The rain is torrential enough,
pounding the earth
long after thirst has
been quenched.
The sun is powerful enough
threatening the world
with engulfing flames,
holding back for now.
May we learn not to
match storm with storm
torrent with torrent,
fire with fire.
May we withstand the storm,
witness the rolling sadness,
Respect heat of fire,
May we be the eye, the heart, the peace. – TS
