old soldier
thinking of his mother
and the mothers of those
taken by the war
the grief
the loss
peace comes hard
before the end
knowing the price of war
he caused for others
not feeling his debt
paid in full

they came
lived side by side
learned “the enemy”
was just like them
~ told to hate
kindred souls
seeds of peace sown
my heart yearns
for youthful souls to change
to love one another

heart of stone
formed from hatred
stored within
a gentle soul
stopped and watched
a kind word
a soothing spirit
heart opened just a moment
peace and love entered
heart of stone
grateful with peace
peace crept in

be peace
share peace
give peace
be a magnet for others
a peaceful heart

remembering
navy blue shoes
with steel high heels
walking on concrete sidewalks
hearing the rhythm of my walk

Citrus fruit squeezer like my Mother would have used back in my childhood and beyond.


.
fresh squeezed orange juice
it was the norm growing up
helping Mother squeeze the orange juice
essence of orange on our hands
getting every drop of juice to share
sunshine in every sip
