peace mansion

bombs rest like stones &
bullets are frozen
in their arcs

for an instant, a meteor
of peace lights
the human sky

the fate of our universe
is undecided

it is time to

you dream
with the endless power
of a god

your will is

it is for you,
not for others,
to decide

you have the wisdom
to love your neighbors
or you are not

you must honor your brotherhood
with the worms & the mountains
or you have no

is it time to stop
the killing?
to slowly, methodically,
rinse the blood
from your hands?

want less, hate
less, care

let your heart
be a mansion for peace
& the darkest distances
will be touched
by light
