Dreams Of Peace.


Once more I strolled by My River;

The stillness surrounding me.

My River flowed silently beside me,

Not a ripple to be seen,

Even the swan’s wake was almost still.

This silence enveloped me

Until I was at one with nature.

My thoughts meandered through this miasma

In which I was enthralled.

Why cannot all find this peace,

This peace of coming together,

Without rancour, without war, without killing,

Just live with each other in harmony .

Why do some people need to fight,

Need to impose their wills on others.

Why can’t life be as smooth as My River

As it flows at my side and through my life.

It is only a dream,

But I can escape it for a while,

As I walk with My River,

With My Spirit.

    Good write Gold.
    One reason there's no peace is cos I keep turning up and singing! heehee.

    • Goldfinch60

      Thanks Orchi.

      All you need to do is sing far, far away.

          Thank you Maxine. If only those in power cared instead of trying to get more power.

          Dear Andy, you ask a most difficult question. It is something I think about in the peace of a morning walk, as you do along your river. A mind can be the hardest thing in the world to change. If only we could get everyone to take that walk and reflect, we might get somewhere. Thank you for this beautiful soul searching poem, and as always lovely music.

          • Goldfinch60

            So very true Bella, if only everyone could walk in peace a way for peace in our world could be found.
            Thank you for your kind comments.

            True peace is found within. But yes, I wish that too!!! But remember, it starts with US!!! Beautiful!!! 🩵

            • Goldfinch60

              Thank you LIZ, yes you are right it starts with US but surely US can try and find peace in our world somehow.
