What is Peace Felt?

A fresh blanket of fallen snow

A soft breeze tickling one's face

Looking up at the stars on a clear October night

Viewing a beautiful work of art

Beholding a landscape from the dune-top


A warm smile

A warm bed


Walking through a grassy meadow

Watching and listening to children build sand castles

Holding a lovers hand

Holding a kitty as he purrs

Becoming one with a soothing saxophone solo


Observing busy little ants


When ones soul finally understands another's


A stroll through a well kept garden landscape

Alone deep in the forest

The sound of gentle waves cascading across grains of sand

Children laughing

Bedtime stories

Fairy tale endings

A mother's tender kiss

A visit from Grandma


The echo of a distant train whistle


Windswept resonances through tops of trees

Sifting sand through one's fingers

Fulfilling a promise

Making Up

Making Love


Observing butterflies flutter from flower to flower

Witnessing a golden sunset over Lake Michigan

A hot meal

A good movie

A candle lit bath

Singing in the shower


Listening to Christmas carols

Free falling snowflakes


When the beauty of nature stops you in your tracks

Wading barefoot through a hidden forest pond

Watching little fishes float freely


The hush after a thunderstorm

Standing outside during a warm downpour with open arms

The scent of fresh air after a morning rain shower


Sitting around the campfire with loved ones

First warm day of Spring after a long hard Winter

One's awareness of deep inhaling and exhaling


Trusting in The Creator and The Universe


Now I lay me down to sleep

I pray mankind will find the love to live in peace

......and being able to read these words which mean so much to you - and because these poetic sentiments are so universal this is a piece which everyone can relate to!

Peace - right back to you - and thanks for putting me in such a tranquil mood!

I love this, Kathi simply beautiful and I share each and every line as though from my own soul - except that my grandpas were both dead before my parents reached puberty. I've had the vicarious joy of seeing & sharing in my own grands and great-grands (and step-grands and great grandson) enjoy their step-grandpa, my beloved George, though. You are a true emissary of peace in a troubled world. Hugs. . .

"Watching ants make sand castles" !! What a unique visual. I like the train whistle, the purring cat, the campfire, looking at stars... very nice images of peaceful settings. Voted up.

Peace what is peace felt, well you've honored it magically. I value peace as it is priceless. Peace is my guide to a happy and balanced life always heading me in the right direction as when there is a lack of peace I know I should not do it, when at total peace I know I'm doing exactly what I should without doubt. Peace has no room for doubt! Love your work! :) Katie
