Candy and I have been working on a project that we would like to call “Collaboration for Peace”. Here is our second creation, combining my photos with her haiku. We hope to spread peace and hope throughout this community of poets. Who is Candy? You can find her at rhymeswithbug.com We are both members of Artists4Peace.

A beautiful place to find peace…
“Even though we are all different, we are all the same. We all want to be loved and accepted for who we are.”
One of the greatest challenges in life is cooperative interaction with others. We hit walls we don’t want to climb and cross bridges we don’t want to meet…half…way. We guard our personalities and beliefs with our life.
Why? It took a long time to figure out who we are and no one is going to mess with that…right?
However, sometimes we have to step out of our deep rooted convictions and venture into neutral territories. It is in this place that we will find one thing in common. When we look underneath egos and actions, we will find the vulnerability that makes all of us human….the need to be validated and loved.
This is where hearts will align.. in spite of ourselves.
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
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.
PEACE isn’t merely a word,
A two fingered gesture
PEACE enters darkness
To separate innocence
From all that destroys
PEACE is a power
Stronger than evil
But much more intelligent
PEACE doesn’t fight
PEACE uses its words,
Its heart, its mind
PEACE takes its time
To think, to listen, to believe
That we are all the same
And those that hate
Need PEACE to guide them
Not guns in their hands
Or more sorrow in their hearts
PEACE is Love
And LOVE is Peace
Hand in hand
