Peace is like Sunlight

Willow tree

Peace is like sunlight:
I yearn toward it.
I can’t hold it in my hand.
I want it most
when I don’t have it.

This post is dedicated to Beth, a teacher to us all, an artist of simple, deep truths.

“An intellectual says a simple thing in a hard way. An artist says a hard thing in a simple way.”  Charles Bukowski

This is also dedicated to Brussels, Belgium, and all of us in the world who bear witness to these terrible crimes against innocent people. Let’s stop hate. Let’s stop killing.
