Poetry Friday: A Poem for Peace


Head over to Amy at The Poem Farm for more poetry today.  Thanks, Amy.

September 21 was International Peace Day.  So in honor of yesterday and wow, do we ever need it, a poem for peace.



for peace
while walking
and collecting rocks
for skipping into the ocean
with cormorants watching nearby
their ebony wings flapping,
cheering us
