please pass the peas

 

Perhaps when the dog stops barking

Everyone can finally go back to sleep

And dream of sweet repose in quiet

Communities with no reason what-

Ever for watchdog to howl.  all.  night.

_______

People want peace, of course, but seems

Everyone wants peace on their own terms

And at the expense of others’ peace.  I mean,

Can’t we all just love one another?  No, it’s

Every man/woman for himself/herself…myself

_______

Politics haven’t succeeded in lasting peace

Even psychology disagrees over peace of mind

And most of us want a bigger piece of pie, yet

Christmas child, Prince of Peace, reconciles

Each one who believes, as a child, with God.

    Peace…the peace that passes understanding…peace definitely isn’t arguing or harming, is it? Indeed the Prince of Peace who loves us all.

    What a wonderful acrostic, Lynn, and so full of truth. Great title–serious thoughts mixed with a light touch.

    I enjoyed your acrostic approach. Ah, if anything politics causes more dissension than peace. Sigh.

    odd, that even after reconciled with a god, peace does not win

    Ah yes, sadly politics all around the world plays its part in disturbing our peace. If only we could put a stop to it. Beautifully penned 🙂

    Lots of love,

    I like the different takes on peace ~ And how ironic that we want peace on our terms ~ The last one is my favorite with these lines:

    Christmas child, Prince of Peace, reconciles

    Each one who believes, as a child, with God.

    Thanks Lynn and wishing you happy week ~
