When Peace Accords

At the end of distances,

grateful beyond words,

a smile blesses the unseen.

I rise in darkness, eager

to awaken, to gladly join

the arriving light.

When peace accords

all sorrow and joy

diffuse on a timeless

palette, notes for songs

the trees will welcome,

each word, a whale

breaking the surface,

spray of an offshore wind.

When peace accords,

enough has been known

to give away what I love.
