taking wing

The Times of Truce

 

When the blowing

winds cease.

When the swelling

seas settle down.

When the earth

enters a still point

near dawn,

near dusk.

Or the night skies

grow silent

with stars.

Whenever the world

of Nature

makes peace

with itself.

And Man

mirrors that

peace in himself;

gives free leave

to his fellow man.

These are the times

when rare and

graceful plumes of truce,

deep spirits of unity,

community

can be found and

greatly felt ~

by everything living.

Be remembered and

honored ~

by everyone,

young to old,

hearkening.
