Peacemakers(a poem)

Updated on November 16, 2015

Brooks are hushed and squeezed tightly in rustic cans

Dogs and thugs on the leash,hunting high and low

Secret cryptic flylights in the dark nights


Tyres deflated ,spires ground razed .. arms akimbo..big sighs

Sweet yore only dust and shadows

on the collective memory stubbornly like to linger .


So run run, run so far ,hide in me as a seed

Till spring with blue birds arrive

Filling the air bright colors and tuneful lyres


My mom told me and my dad agreed

Tomorrow is for the peacemakers

Who are worth all the tea in China.
