There is a peace...

Saturday's Poetics' bartender, Mary, invites us to write about Peace Within and Without....

There is a peace..
.where there is no fear
of life's fire and ice storms... 
where swallows sail the unseeable
airy matrix,
 gaining momentum..
... when wind and rain 
rock tree branches to a timeless

...there is a peace.. 
..where no hatred or bitter scorn 
dare stalk..
 where we walk sun blotched paths..
 birds tenderly covered  in 
shawls of first light,
 singing from high white pine 
of profound love 
...there is a peace..
where no one suffers pain or loss
..somewhere a place..
where not yet drawn latitudes appear
...reaching far beyond
 the tumbling sea..
 a wide stretched canvas to paint on waves to swim in

    birds tenderly covered in
    shawls of first light,
    singing from high white pine
    of profound love
