What Peace Looks Like

December 7, 2010 § Leave a comment

Quiet cafe
Lulled by instruments
Arab, Latino
They meet in the space I opened for heaven
A harp and a drum

From the window
A snowfall
Falls

Outside. Inside.

Something white and pure and purposeful

Covers all of it; covers everything

It’s OK

This snowfall is just more evidence:
The war is over

And this, just this, only and always this
This is what peace looks like

-Mary Fowles, Montreal, December 2010
