POETRY: Peace
Posted Feb 11, 2003

the many healing moments
you’ve hugged my ailing heart
helping fertile leaves


          Peace

you took me to your home
and fed me
brown wild rice and mutton

sharing the story of yusuf
teaching inner strength
ripe possibilities within the stunted self

the many healing moments
you’ve hugged my ailing heart
helping fertile leaves

unfurl in my being
the way life is born
from darkness.

something profound
sounds
in the awkward soul

hammering restlessness stills
peace and faith
interwine.
