My heart is saddened to see what continues to go on in this world…but we must continue to find hope and spread peace and do what we can to restore the love and peace in humanity.
I just wanted to remind you all that #PoetsforPeace collaboration initiated by my friend Michael and hosted here at forgottenmeadows is still open. We have over 85 contributions from around the world and I am amazed by the powerful messages shared. Let’s continue to unite together to spread peace… to join simply add your piece in the comment section of the collaboration post. Please share #poetsforpeace and watch this collaboration grow.
My friend Brad has also started a #peacechallenge, and I hope you join his effort and together we all stand strong behind peace.

The quiet night stretches leisurely,
waking slowly from morning dreams,
It leans on the stars and greets the moon,
Stretching out, on its beam…
Above the silent open fields,
it sits on bale of hay,
peaking through the windows…
watching you sleep,
waiting for the light of day
I like to stay up all night
and follow my waking dreams
resting my mind,
on the moonbeam
lighting the sky…
the eternal night…
with all their might…
in the evening breeze…
my heart sigh
In the lost constellation,
“I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.”
― Edna St. Vincent Millay “Afternoon on a Hill”
With open arms,
on the brink
of the storm.
