Peace – A Collaboration

This is the fourth piece of collaboration between my good friend Michael and I. We have decided to do one collaboration per month for five months…Due to our busy schedules we have missed a month here and there but we hope you enjoy this piece. If you haven’t checked out Michael’s talented writing yet, I suggest you visit his blog https://originaldante.wordpress.com/ now!

As always, it was a pleasure to work with Michael on this…Peace was the subject of our muse and it was quite interesting to see how it came together.

Michael in this color

I am in this color

 

A medium

That best magnifies

A piece of my mind

To give me peace of mind,

Hand me the pen

And cue the white dove,

No pre-determined formula

Nor appraisal for the zen

We search for everyday.

But when luck has it

And light seeps

From this vessel,

The result of being

An advocate for light,

Touching souls

On being able to relate,

On ups and downs;

No greater euphoria.

When all is said and done

Granting peace to others

Far supersedes

My endless search

For inner peace.

Peace was born

in the eye of the storm

when time stood still

Peace was held

without expectations, without condemnations

without the dollar bill

Peace was yours

Peace was mine

Peace was free

Peace was found in quiet contemplations

in heart’s whispers

amidst the silence of trees

I searched for peace

in nature’s soul

to be whole

to find me.

Emptiness – A collaboration

What else do I look for

When I don’t even know

What else to look for?

 

I have many missing

Pieces and parts

Is it all for naught?

 

Constantly searching,

Yet I haven’t even

Found myself.

 
In between the empty spaces,
I sometimes hide,
the obscure tangent thoughts,
that always find,
me.
 
They fail all logic,
but haunt
my day and night
like an infinite black hole,
they consume
my mind.
 
In between the empty spaces,
I sometimes hide
the obscure tangent thoughts,
that always find,
me.
My good friend Michael, from Original Dante and I have decided to do a collaboration each month, for five months. This was the first of five, and our topic was emptiness. The orange is Michael’s muse and the black is mine. If you haven’t read Michaels works, I suggest you do so now for some amazing poetry and fiction.
