The Ways Of Peace !

It would seem that to achieve true Peace , there often seems a time of war or trouble that precedes it ......

The Battled scarred land





The ways of Peace - are often known to cross a

Battle scarred and weary land - where

Skirmishes and wars have left their mark -

Upon the cratered wastes and hearts - of burdened man -

Longings Of A Quiet Hearth




From these - come longings of a quiet hearth - to warm

The trodden paths of daily toil - where those

Who soldier on - can find respite - amidst their labour -

Which leaves them tired and worn - from

Whence their souls recoil .

Such Longings Of A Better Day




Such longings of a better day - when angry voices

Cease to have their way - and silence reigns supreme - and

Sunshine replaces dullest grey - and flowers and gentle hearts -

Live in harmony - beside life's quiet flowing stream .

When God Is God




This - then is Peace -

When God is God - and Sovereign Lord - and

All is calm - serene - and

restless strivings cease.

God bless you all with His peace today .

With His love from

Stella

Let Go of regrets and Sorrows and Smile Again
in the Cool Of The Day
In His Time
Like A Watered Garden

Great peaceful poem. We can change our ways and the way we raise our kids and treat strangers, even people we dislike if we really want peace.

Lovely poem for peace, Stella. We have learned enough from wars to know we need peace more than at anytime. But we still play with fire and get burned - siva
