Where Peace Resides

I do not know
For sure
Where peace resides.
Is it on the in-breath
As we take in our lives,
Or on the out-breath
As we release out petty struggles?

Perhaps it is found
On that threshold
At that inspired instance
As in
Passes to out,
At a more perfect moment
That is created,
In the quiet brilliance
Of being?

And for certain
We are blessed
Now and again,
When out hearts
Are able to see,
On the inside
And the outside
And the in-between.

Lichen Peace

Lichen Peace

I will bring you water
And you will grow our food,
Together we are better
In a world of peace.
I will ground us to the rock
And you will sop
The radiant sun
Together we are better
In a world of peace.
Together we will prosper
As we share
And work together
In a world of peace.
