Dream of Peace.

I look out across the sea,

The gentle flow of the ocean waves

In harmony with the world,

The world of peace and beauty.


The storm clouds appear,

The winds rise ,

The waves get higher

And crash to the shore,

Natures anger rises.


Calm is soon restored

And I once more look out,

Look out at the peace and beauty

That should be inherent,

Inherent in our world.


The storms within people

Seem unending,

They are unwilling to be calm,

All need what THEY want

Without caring for others.


I look out across the sea,

And dream of peace.

    A fine write Gold. I don't think we do choose peace 'naturally', in our nature as human beings, without reference to God. Though we are capable of peace, being made in God's image.

      Thanks Orchi. Peace is within our nature it is just that those in power do not want it.

        You know we CAN give peace a chance, it's the other buggers who spoil it.

              An apt dream dear Goldi this need for peace between nations and people who experience "storms within."

              • Goldfinch60

                Thank you Fay, yes that peace needs to be within all.
