Would you blog for peace?


The boat named “Life” sailed in the ocean,
in the middle of somewhere very deep and dark.
The boat touched the salty water with a kiss and
waves and foam from the crash were born.

The power of the wind took the newborn to
the shore, little secret, a miracle brought along.
Purple footprints left on the beach,
a castle and a mermaid from the sand rebuilt.

The garden near suddenly spotted and
with joy, with pleasure ran to visit, to explore.
The flowers didn’t dare to hurt, to ruin,
just whispered: “How beautiful you are, my dear!”

The grass went green than ever, sleepy roses
with the colors of the rainbow blossomed.
Happy sparkles lit behind and
into the forest after that walked alone.

The trees asked for the road, their leaves with
breath of love blessed, by the river exhausted felt,
but the sound of sweet and flowing water heard,
few drops of freedom drank and flew to greet the sky.

On top the busy town saw
and sunshine sprinkled, smiling at the rain.
Pen and paper stole in an act of innocent mischief,
something wrote and the envelope quickly sealed.

The letter in the bag of the postman placed
and sent it to my door to ring the bell.
I opened carefully and the mail read,
the words in hopeful ink said : ” Let us keep the peace! “

    Yes, “let us keep the peace” indeed, Blaga. Where there is none, let us create peace. Let us spread peace, share peace, value peace.
    Thank you for creating a wonderful “scent” for Peace!

  2. Bodhirose Says:

    Beautiful Blaga! There’s hope in this that life is heading in the direction of peace. Lovely…

    Hi. I write for peace. It is a project for Gawain Para sa Kapayapaan (Work for Peace). It is about working one’s inner peace, a contribution of each individual to earth. Any anonymous individual writing, dancing, singing, gardening, farming, going on a pilgrimage for inner peace automatically Work for Peace. When we have inner peace, we radiate peace in the world.


    Peace and love.

    “Let us keep the peace.” This is wonderful, Blaga. The pacing and the images of the poem, make it a guided meditation. Lovely.

    What a perfect response to Evan’s peace challenge. Well done.

    Peace and Hugs,

    I agree with the latest commenters. Great!

  8. Neutral Universe Says:

    I really can’t help but to click the five-star button. Reading this poem again (since you have no latest post yet) makes me cringe in a good way. :)

    Have a nice day over there.

    So beautiful, Scent of my heart. I often think our actions have a ripple effect so it’s wonderful to know that peace can radiate out and touch even those that aren’t feeling as peaceful.

    Am glad you are not in Egypt right now.

    Very powerful message. You do a great job with analogy giving a strong stance on peace. Excellent work!

  12. plaridel Says:

    that’s a splendid idea. every little bit helps, especially now, when it seems like for every one step forward toward peace, the world is taking two steps back.

  13. Jingle Says:

    This is an amazing approach to the Peach challenge – much better than what I could have written! It’s a really comforting sounding poem, I love the imagery as always! Sorry for the late read of this, I havent been getting my subscription emails from everyone – it just occured to me today that I haven’t received an email about a post of yours in a few days and was wondering what’s up. Darn my emails! I’ll have to make note to check back more often, I don’t want to miss any of your great work!
