Peace is Near

Updated on January 3, 2013

There is a special moment in time

When silence speaks to those that listen

An important silence commanding attention

Demanding her audience to rise up

Embrace the stillness

Peace is near

So near that the earth erupts with joy

Light shimmers from glass-like reflections

Images cast upon great rivers and streams

Beg for peace to draw near

Longing for her residence

A stay that promises reconciliation

Opening her arms to the wayward traveler

A whisper escapes

It is the wind whistling

A slight brush against leaves

And silence settles upon the earth.

      Opening her arms to the wayward traveler

      A whisper escapes

      It is the wind whistling

      A slight brush against leaves

      And silence settles upon the earth.

      Wonderful words; I vote up,across and share all around.

      Have a great weekend.

      Eddy.

      A lovely poem and I especially like the quiet stillness that the end suggests.
