To Be Peaceful

August 28, 2013

For Jeni Stepanek in memory of Mattie Stepanek

Conscious, peaceful thoughts sometimes can steer one’s life to right.

Gracious, peaceful hands work to bring hidden wrongs to light.

Gentle, peaceful words we speak may often end a fight.

Loving, peaceful deeds will lift another to new heights.

NOTE: This gift poem was given to Dr. Jeni Stepanek on August 28, 2013, the same day as the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington.

Jeni published the poem on-line with a photo she took with President Jimmy Carter from their meeting that same day. Click here to go to her site.

At the finish line,
One rider raises his head
Ribbon in his hands.

Carried just so on the arm
Cover needle marks.

Mimics sea life
Floating driftwood

Darkened horizon
The setting sun reminds me
Tasks remain undone.

Passerby with dog
Disgusted neighbors look on
Fertilized tree box.

Quick spring storm passes
Sun arrives ready to dry
The freshly cleaned world.

After their landing
Dancing raindrops celebrate
“We are here at last!”
