4 In poetry



the olive branch got dropped in their salad
it’s now being tossed around with ego, intolerance, hatred, pain
being dressed with anger and confusion
who will be served the peace? will
they even  notice it amongst
the more bitter flavours?

i want to be like a leaf –
charmed and carried
wherever the wind blows…
landing wherever it wants to take me

a lie becomes truth
from being thought about
too often

silence stretches out to eternity
for me to walk it’s thin black ribbon

    I love that, about the leaf……charmed and carried wherever the wind blows. An invitation to let go and trust.

    love to you, dear Leonie

    The image of the salad…incredibly unique and powerful. And the thin black ribbon of silence… wow. Your words are beautiful.
