where i live
Where I live the breeze
blows gently across the pond,
the sky is clear and blue,
the trees grow tall,
and the song of birds floats in the air.
Where I live people talk instead of fight,
listen instead of talk,
respect and honor differences.
Where I live the hungry are fed,
the sick healed,
the lost returned
safe to their homes.
Where I live there is laughter
Where I live there is a stillness,
a space for ideas to be born.
Where I live there is no need of fear.
Where there is no fear I live.
Where I live is as big as your heart
and as small as the universe.
I am peace.
Will you have me live with you?
Anna Grossnickle Hines
from a book of children's poetry matched with beautiful quilts. i'll share more soon.
here it's freezing and busy with travel and work, yet we find peace in movement and time together.
where is peace where you are?
