Pristine and beautiful,
the song sings sweetly on.
A million loves wrapped in one,
Here she sings for all days.
'All are welcome,'
The branches quietly wave.
Effortless and free,
Whole heart,
Every part,

and. . . Peace.
Can we have Peace,
Until we have Peace?
Yes. First we have Peace,
and then we have Peace.

Today is a holy day

by NikolaiI on 04-08-2015 at 07:52 PM
Today is a holy day
(as yesterday was, as tomorrow is)
for if any day is a holy day,
all days are holy days,
where any land is a pure land,
all lands are pure lands.
So sing songs of cheer
Throughout the year -
For joy is wonderful,
And song is beautiful.
This healing verse
Will stay the hearse,
On a holy, holy day.
Breathing deep, sweet sighs of relief,
The infinite soul, ever free of grief -

-- I wrote the first three this day, standing high on a fallen tree, listening intently to an ant (they don't speak!), I wrote the last two a few days ago.. I'm more pleased with these.. Peace and love.

This ant is me.
I am this tree.
Alive as one,
we are all free.
Infinite as can be,
I can dance;
and verily,
we are all free.

In the shadow,
or in the light,
we are born to
and from delight.

On Protection of Life's Harmony

by NikolaiI on 03-29-2015 at 12:36 PM
eternal way of peace-
hidden in plain sight
infinite peace from
love, and beauty's light.
persuade, never -
live in peace, forever.

energy of mindfulness,
and peace,
to all the worlds.

deeply rooted in tradition,
i have discovered new-found vision,
who i am and what i stand for is written
in these lines, a bit of life, past history,
and then all of peace i have found.
