Speaking of Peace

Posted on



We are but one decibel in the scream

One whisper of insight, unspoken

Tongues too frozen to speak

Or are we tone deaf to the sound of

Fingers running along wind chimes?

Glass, bamboo, shells, stones, porcelain, metal, wood

All different

Dangling in the same sweet sea breeze

Tapping on each others hearts

To find perfect harmony


Truth, peace, harmony, love” are part of the poetic prompt at dVerse this week.

Also written for Artists4Peace.
