The Circle of Peace

The Circle of Peace
Extends in infinite directions
Wherever you look
Whenever you sleep

It resides in your baby’s cry
And in your lover’s sigh
It is infinitely wide
And just as high

Especially when you don’t go looking for it
But rather embrace it just where you are

Just as you are

A shining star
Of potential peace
About to bloom
And share your infinite fragrance
With the sacred world
Of now.

Beam it high
Beam it low
Beam it on the breast of winged doves

Yet to be born who still hear your gentle intrusion
Upon a messy slope
Bringing hope
In ways simple and strong
And helping others
Move their lives along

So take a step
Take a gentle and kind step
To nowhere at all

Just bend down and
Tend to your own
Little stars

Beaming bright
In the everyday light
Of just as it is
Here and now –

Welcome heaven on earth
As earth is in heaven

Where stars bloom bright
Then cycle away and die

Where angels sing their silent songs
That no one can hear
But the crazy fools
Who hear beyond the walls of the empires
Of cultures narrow and too defined

Call upon the nothing
Which is just what you are
And embrace your perennial peace

With a smile on your
Ravaged and pockmarked face

Oh child
Of infinite place and
Race.
