* Poems To Peace Of Which We Are All Formed

*

ICE SCULPTURE EAGLE BEAK DRIPS

A congressional luncheon..
of a politician on the military spending
committee..
as time goes on.. the ice sculpture eagle
begins to drip from the beak..
as ice becomes water
.. the frozen becomes flexible
.. a spear point.. becomes peace
.. 1 function becomes the power of all function

What moves mountains of
ice? Faith in the Sun.
**
(to Les Aspin)

PEACEFUL MASTER

In the holiest of climes
where the vines to heaven climb
the sweetest fall of rain
becomes sour juice of lime.
And the rainfall mercy clement
becomes the sour juice of lemon.
So did the words of peaceful
Master
become the force of
warmonger pastors..
Soon they too will be aligned
by the God of the astras
.. the God of the asters.

(to John Clemente, a peaceliving
man)

3 SHIMMERING RAINBARRELS

The storm was full of menacing dark clouds..
hard cold rain..
treecleaving lightning ..
now it is over
and in the twilight
3 rainbarrels brimful of rain..
shimmer in the starlit peace.
Atop them lattices of fallen leafy branch
.. lifeboats for any country mice.

(at one of the many places
S Berg has made beautiful)

BLUE CHALK CROSSES

A vision of blue chalk crosses
such as at Arlington Cemetery..
scrawled on a blackboard..
they can still be erased..
peace begins with you
peace begins with me
peace in thought word
and deed
in prayers
by hearts freed..
peace at the end of our forks
peace at the end of our tongues
Woodrow, you never recovered
from the site of those many thousand
crosses in France, marking the
unncessary deaths of farmers' sons
and widows' boys...
caught between the imperialist colonizing
banksters of England
and Germany.

OLD MEN

The old man running out of his
burning hut, set on fire
by napalm
in Vietnam..
Another old man was not as lucky,
bulldozed and buried alive
in his home
by the tanks of the occupiers.
A third, the father equivalent
of the Pieta, silently
wept as his son's coffin
came home, disgorged from
the plane's metal belly.
Countless others
were incinerated by
incendiary
firebombs dropped on
Tokyo's rice paper
homes.

NO BOMBING OF THE BABIES OF BAGHDAD

If no one moves the bombs, if no one flies the planes,
If no one pilots the boats, drives the trucks or buses,
if no one goes as a sheep to slaughter,
there can be no war.

SPRINGING FORTH

In the high plateaus
Tibetan prayer flags unfurl
bursting blooms
of petaled swirl

In the unwalled
meadow churches
courageous
Jack In The Pulpits
speak peace
to the grasses.

The whispering
winds of Iran
Pakistan
Afghanistan
call all to prayer
and dance minuets
with flowers' tiny minarets

From winter's hidden recesses
spring now unrolls
greenleafed pacific
Isaiah's scrolls

And the Jasmine spreads
her holy scents
where sun oer Hindu
lands ascends

PEACEWARD

Turn us from paths warward
to the peaceward
.. from war words
to peace words
from the past
to the forward

GETTYSBURG GRANITE TEAR

In Gettysburg, a statue
to Abraham Lincoln..
in his right eye,
a granite tear has
formed..like a pearl
within an oyster..

it would be many a year
before the soul which
was Lincoln forgave
himself for the purchase
of draft exemptions by
the rich.. while the
poor deserters were hanged

OLIVE BRANCH

For some the laurel
leaves of glory
.. For others
beheaded blooms
of romance
.. as for me
the olive branch
which when
attached to
mother trees
brings lasting
offerings of peace

RED AND WHITE ROSE

The Yorks and Lancasters..
.. one a rose of red wore
the other.. white rose

.. now in their
gardens
side by side
the red and
the white rose grow.

SWEET PEA POLITICS

Dear sweet peas
teach us how you
greengrow peace...
not worrying if crows
say..
that the foe you appease

ADVENT OF THE LIGHT

Time passes..
the dark night's
impenetrable
might
is severed by
morning
swords of light
Evil's unity
is broken.
Melting now
are the shells of malice
and the shards of night

soon their evil is so slight
.. they disappear
in the advent of light
***
Course In Miracles: Fear is like a lowlying dense impenetrable
thundercloud. You enter it and find it cannot hold the fall of a
button (paraphrased

AFRICAN HEARTS POLISH HORSES

O Abba
to You we give thanks
that in time
Polish horses
defeat Nazi tanks

that in time
defenseless African
hearts beating as one
conquer
the machine guns
of Cecil Rhodes

that
Seminoles & Shawnee
Shiawassee and Cherokee
who died protecting

their homes their trees
win now over
woods raping
bulldozers backed
by rifles

that unprotected
women
rising as one
defeat the belts
and boots
of programmed men

that the pen of Rumi
is mightier than
the 'daisycutters'
bombs..

that the music of
the life of Cesar Chavez
reached beyond the
money of plutocrats
directly into America's
soul

and that the cries
of billions of animals
begin to echo
in heartcaves
.. their resonance
brings down the pillars
of the past

CANNON FODDER NO MORE

Cannon Fodder..
the poor.. the uneducated
.. become the peons
and pawns
of schemes which
servants of the rich spawn
God protect them
as they huddle in fox
holes in the cold
to preserve the buillion
of billionaires

Dead are civilians

bombed in the millions..
Dismantle the altars of
greed violence and ego
on which these darkpath
magicians would
have sacrificed young men
and women

Perhaps Abraham failed
the test in putting
Isaac on the altar.

INFIDELS

Some Muslims think
everyone else is an infidel.
Some Christians think
everyone else is going to hell.
Some Jews think
your name must be Rosen
to be with the chosen.
Some Buddhists think
it's ok to kill.
Some Brahmins think
everyone else is untouchable.
Some Adventists think no
one else is among the 'elect'.
Some atheists think
that all theists are stupid.

As the zenith sun is
visible from all windows
so does God illuminate
every path to God.
Everyone arrives.
All paths are holy.

HOW MAURY DROPPED THE A

This department store executive
handed out thousands of dollars
of cigarettes .. in mental
hospital wards.. because he
hated forced change..

He adopted 12 people to love
unconditionally.. to be present
for at all times.. he said
he knew this was impossible
.. but that it could be no more
than 12..

he became a vegetarian in
a desire to reduce the
suffering he caused

and decided one day to
figure the mathematical
probability that with
tens of thousands of fingers
on the nuclear button no nuclear
device had been detonated.. he decided then that
the probability was so infinitesimal
that a higher power of Infinity must
be preventing the detonating..
since no nation since the US
in 1945 had
dropped the big A..

and he dropped the A from
atheist.

KIM PHUC

In every seed
is a bottled message
waiting to be freed.
In every heart
is captive love
waiting to be freed.

MIDWEST GOVERNOR

He supported sending poor
boys off to war
and the killing of mourning
doves.. and of bears
He revved up the volts
of electric chair
.. and then garnered the votes
of the prolife stars.

One day he was struck by
a light from afar..
.. with love for
the imprisoned
and the
soldier sons of the poor
and doves and bears

and now deserves
the votes
of the prolife stars.

PHYSICS NOT MIRACLE

When A highly charged aura spherical
which transmutes all to spiritual
has weapons thrown against it..
they boomerang upon the sender

This is physics, not miracle

By their own
ultraviolet
are protected, the nonviolent.

OLIVE BRANCHED DOVE OVER ARROW GRASPING EAGLE

They chose the Dove
with her olive branched beak,
hope made tangible,
rather than the eagle's arrow-
holding claws,
the mistletoe
of love
over limelight's
laurel leaves the
apple seeds of
free food,
the pine cones of
beauty
the acorns of
reforesting oaks
over the asphalt
of the control
of Mother Earth.

FDR'S WAR MEMORIAL

The Arizona, metal grave
of the 900 men drowned
in the bombing
in Pearl Harbor.

(only God can judge..)

DIVINE LOVE'S CANONS

Divine Love's canons
are silencing the cannons

REMORSE

Most of his peers
in the Senate
had remorse
that they had not
voted for peace
with Wayne Morse.
Perhaps God will
the world Re Morse

Left his body
has Senator Gruening
but in his footprints
the world keeps greening.

(the 2 senators who voted
against the Tonkin Gulf Resolution)
(to the disembodied Inspector Morse,
John Thaw)

WORK FOR PEACE IS AN OXYMORON

Is there
a frame for Infinity.
Never slakes the thirst
.. the bitter
saltwater near mother earth.
.. never satiated is the
belly of many tongued Fire
.. Never filled the soul
afflicted with unGodward desire.
Never at rest.. the
mercurial mind.

Only the heart immersed
in the waters of God
is at peace.

(to Yogananda and his followers)

CROPDUSTERS ARE ECOTERRORISTS

"Ecoterrorists" is what
euphemism busters
might from now on
call 'cropdusters'.
And those who drop
bombs on civilians
from the air..
are they not terrorists
aerial
whether their names
are Norman
or Ariel?
May all Uriahs be
protected from now
on.. by
archangel Uriel

TOLSTOY'S CHILDREN

As he saw among his
words' resisters
.. a child or 2
and a sister..
he did not know at
the time
more children were
in distant climes..
Mahatma Gandhi
and Martin Luther King
Dorothy Day
with more every day

JESUS PETER ISAIAH AND GOD

Jesus told stoners to put down their stones
Jesus told Peter to put down his sword.
Turn them to plowshares.. were Isaiah's words.
Thou Shalt Not Kill.. to Moses told Lord

PLATTSBURGH MIRACLE

1970, the Fifth of May
One day after
the Kent State Four.
The Plattsburgh students
decide to act
from their very heartcores.
They say that in league
with those at Kent State
They will march to
the SAC Air Forc eGate..
to witness that they
want peace evermore.
The SAC commander now decrees
that any who touch
the Air Force gate
will be summarily shot..
This is he says
for security's sake.
And as the students file by
what a miracle is in store.
Out of base homes come
the Air Force wives.
Holding their babes
they offer their lives
and stand between
the young and the armed
and by their courage
is peace reborn.

BLOSSOM MARTIAL

At Blossom Center,
they will be playing martial
music..
as if one were
to arm blooms
***

HIGHER FIRE

He was not drafted to warships
but summoned to worship..
not to soldiers' gassing
by 'friendly fire'
or corporate hire and fire

but called to the
Higher Fire

For His God whispered to him:
I have said you cannot have
2 masters. Pledge
allegiance only to My Voice..
I have not asterisked with
exceptions My command
not to kill.
I told Peter to put down his
courageous
sword and the executing
mob to put down
their stones.
I have told you to transmute
anger into love.. that
is the meaning of "Turn
the other cheek".
You are the Ocean of Spirit
which all rivers hallows..
no matter how polluted
.. no matter how shallow.

3000 MILES

The Peace Pilgrim..
and Dick Gregory
and Doris Haddock
have walked and run
across America
..with each foot
step.. on the loom
of America
weaving peace.

IVY LEAGUE

Hidden in buildings
behind the quad
lurk vivisectors
.. and spy squads

DOVES AND FLAGS

Four doves riding
on the wings of true
eagles.. flew down
and picked up in
their beaks the American
flag out of the mud
and out of the blood
and took it to
the shrines of peace.

PEACEMAKER

If 5% of Muslims
think all Christians infidels
and 5% of Christians
think all Muslims go to hell
.. are there 90% in between
.. peacemakers..
non ideologues?

PEACE OFFICER

As you walk with
a tear gas cannister,
a stun gun, handcuffs,
a club, a gun, bullets
.. do you convey
that you are an
officer of peace?

(inspired by the following drawing)

http://www.drawingresistance.org/new_page_20.htm

HOLY GROUND

Moses took off his sandals
and put down his rod
as he tred on
the sacred sod:
the Burning Bush
of God

The Poor Clares became discalced..
to follow the Poverty
path of their
  founder..

Ramakrishna went oer the sod
with feet unshod
because he did not want
to harm the goldenrod.

Barefoot Buddhist monks
sweep forest paths
with feather brooms..
  that they disturb..
no bug or bloom.

The brilliant boy
with the headache found
when he removed his socks
Mother Earth had healed him
by absorbing
his excess energy

Now have the
metal tank shoes
been removed
from the sacred ground of Bethlehem.

It is time for all outsiders
to remove metal tank shoes
from the sacred soil of Iraq
and everywhere else
that armed men from another
country are not welcome.

MOSS SKIN

The roots of the tree
are at the surface..
hands covered with
green moss skin..
like spring reaching out
tentatively.. tendrils
of peace
..

GOING HOME

15 soldiers on the Chinook
helicopter thought they
were going home
and found of a sudden
that
they were going
Home

(as they left their bodies
for God evicted by a shoulder fired
missile)

 

WOODPECKER SCULPTOR


the woodpecker wooed the woods with his whittling

sculpture. How ironic that the sound of

his pecking is strangely relaxing.

CALIGULA

Caligula sent the army
to the shore
to collect
seashells

***
Cartel bosses sent the US army
beyond its shores
to collect
oil for BP & Shell

FRUIT OF WAR 2

Babies armless, legless come to the
orphanage.. their mothers and
fathers
bombed...

NOTE OF THRUSH

In the forest so plush
In the forest so lush
near the cataract's gush
near the waterfalls' rush
where none are frightened
by hunters' ambush..
and squirrels never
do one another push
...in the deepening quiet
.. in the gathering hush
.. by the birded bush
near the sacred ground
  of the Burning Bush
comes the trill of the thrush
and peace encircling
does everyone brush

CRIMSON DROPS

It is ordained that
young red rose petals
fall..
in summer and in the fall
but it is not ordained
that crimson blood drop
from the bodies of soldiers

ONE NOTE

The icicle was melting
and its drip drip drip
sounded with one note
only.. like the
mantra of peace
not of songs of the whippoorwill
but of the woodpecker's will

POOL PEACE

A pool is a piece
of far distant seas
A pool is the peace
of far distant seas.

MANY FLAGGED PEACE

the sanctuary

BLUEBIRDS AND BLUEBELLS

Bluebirds and bluebells
are not listed as casus belli

UPSIDE DOWN EXCLAMATION

Over the obelisk of the
Washington Monument,
a star of peace..
the two together:
an upside down exclamation point !
.. the surrender of ego,
a perception from different
angles.. catalysts
to the end of war

PENTAGONY

"The Pentagon has 5 faces..
but Pentagony has 100 million ... paraplegics.. widows..
orphans....children footless from land mines..
vets dying of depleted uranium cancer.. the blinded.. the deaf..
bloated war profiteers inside fancy restaurants while the hungry are outside.. bulldozed cardbox villages for the homeless... green trees bombed
into grey ash... primates in despair in military labs...

DEER ARE NOT VENISON

Those who glory in war
as did Alfred Tennyson
more often have
been deerslayers
who turned beings into venison

THE MOWER OF WAR

As the mower untimely cuts
down the flowers
.. with their multicolored
unfurled flags of all nations
so do the tanks and bombs
cut down
the beauty and lives of the young.

FOILED BY SHRIEKS OF GULLS

ocean waves are asterisked by the shrieks of gulls
peace is foiled by the screams of the slaughterhouse
Dawn's silent pastels
are foiled by... exploding bombs from hell

NINE NATIONS: KNEEL TO GOD

The bullies of nuclear nonproliferation say
nine nations can have their nukes.. but none else.
Let them disarm now.

CONNECT THE RIGHT AND LEFT
BRAIN.. THE MIND AND THE HEART

the
general shed tears
when the fabric of the
flag was
set aflame
but not when thousands
were by bombs
set afire

DADDIES

Countless Iraqi Mommies and Daddies
have been killed as
F16's and cluster bombs
bombed Baghdaddies

UNABOMBER AND POLYBOMBER

Ted Kaczynski is called a Unabomber.
Everyone who votes for war money
or writes briefs for war
is a polybomber.

Some Muslims and some undercover
Jews, some Christians
are suicide bombers
Every pilot who drops
bombs is a homicide bomber.

SHANTISH

In the world's most sacred language, Sanskrit, the word for peace is Shanti. When shanti is repeated over and over it becomes Shantish or Shantishwar, Divinity whose form is peace. To repeat shanti is to summon God as Peace.

FLAG SHROUDS

Those coffin shroud flags
.. how many given to
shattered widows and mothers
children sisters and brothers
before the ears can hear?

ON BEHALF OF A GRATEFUL NATION

"On behalf of a grateful
nation we present this
flag to you", shroud on
the coffin of your baby boy
... wrapping for a box
of broken dreams

but while you grieve
at his grave
over you his soul
into the land of love streams

ABHIMANYU

Abhimanyu, Qusay and Uday,
Absalom..
beloved sons die
.. tearing out hearts
.. it is time for Salem, Shalom

GARDENS BUCKYMYRNAL

war profiteers
bombed fruited fields
into mud infernal
and slew on hatred's
altars
babes and privates
elders and colonels
but looming time. with
lime looms
vernal
knit triple shifts
nocturnal and diurnal
has with free gifts
shown way eternal:
apples nuts grapes
and gold corn kernels
*

PEACE IN THE AIR

butterflies and bees
as they alight
from winged flight
do not oer blooming
feasts of delight
push or pull or fight

UNBLOODY MARBLE

The white marble statues
of conquering generals
.. do not contain the blood
of innocents

ONE GREEN CANDLE AT A TIME

He found himself in Vietnam
... and saw the
devastation to the palms
done by the bomb and
by napalm
and came back to his home
state
.. and coordinated the planting
of over 1 million trees,
lighting the world, 1 green
candle at a time

(to D Kidd)

WHERE EAGLES GATHER

Where eagles gather
they're often fighting
over cadavers.

Theirs has not yet
been the way of peace.***

NIIGATA OVERCAST

because on that day
in Niigata
the skies were gray
**

(Because of the overcast,
Hiroshima replaced Niigata
as the target for the 1st
atom bomb dropped on a civilian
population)

RUSSIAN SHRINE

One walks into the
shrine of the Russian
World War II
war memorial..

erected for the
27 million war dead

It is humbling

One kneels
to the sea of sacrifice
of the Russian people

One kneels
to the hearts
of the Russian people
beating as one

TERRIBLE DEATH

Hitler's officers*
on meat hooks were hanging
Hitler's generals
by piano wire were strangling

whose spirits
left behind
bodies dangling

deliberately sacrificed
by their Commander in Chief

VIETNAM WAR MEMORIAL

Carved in the marble charcoal grey

the names of 58,000 Americans
known to have died..

Their names are supported
by the uncarved marble
of the 4 million Vietnamese
who died.

CARPE DIEM

Carpe Diem
they said
as they carpe'd Diem

(Diem of Vietnam, murdered
in a coup).

WHO KILLED WOODROW

Who killed Woodrow Wilson?

His own heart after seeing
120,000 crosses on
unnecessary graves of
American wardead in France.

worlds used to be
determined by
angry seizures
of would be Caesars

DRYING IN THE SUN  

61 died that day
in the 1st infantry..
in Vietnam

2? rows of body bags..
the fruit of war
drying in the sun

THEIR LIGHT IGNITES

It is their light
which our hearts ignites
.. and not the might
which bombs ignites.

The victories won by
military might
sometimes do not
last the night.

As violence begets
violence,
violets beget violets
and
nonviolence begets
nonviolence

(to Jesus Buddha Ananda Mayee Ma Martin Luther King Susan B Anthony Sadako Kim Phuc)

INABILITY TO DELEGATE

You have an inability
to delegate
said the general
to the major
.. the general
who abstracted
the lower ranks
of his men
into extinction

CHICKENHAWK CHEERLEADER

Cheerleader chickenhawk of the
charnelhouses of War
.. flails Afghan skullcymbals
.. and his diverting pom poms..
taking the attention of the public
from the stadium owners

Several times he has been invited
onto the field
and declined

his meat and armaments
and lumber and mining and oil
and other paymasters lurk in
the alleys behind the fan stands

He sings songs to send others'
children to the slaughter
.. the children of the poor
to the blood altars
but safe are
his own daughters

while presidential preaching pastor
who has forgotten the words of the
Peaceful Master
gripping missiles in his pastor fists
a blasphemy against the Great Pacifist
mouths prayers for the success
of bloodshed.. as tanks
pollute Bethlehem and Palestine

cheerleader did enter a field of battle
himself.. against unarmed pheasants
in a woods.. birds who could
not shoot back.

DOVER

When distant chimes
rang fast
and peeled
it was of joy they told
When distant bells
rang slow
it was a story of grief
they tolled

LIGHT OF GOD SHINES FROM ALL EYES

The light of God shines out of all eyes..
the eyes of every
human, animal, bird, fish, insect..
even the eyes of serial killers and unelected warwagers

HIT MAN OR BIG GAME HUNTER

Why does a hit man kill?
For money
Why does a biggame hunter kill?
For pleasure.
Why does a barroom brawler kill?
In rage
Why do some generals kill?
For power
Why do some spouses kill?
Out of jealousy
Why do fundamentalist Christians
  Muslims Jews Buddhists Hindus kill?
Out of hatred or ignorance.
God by all names called, You who indwell all,
   send grace to all.

GETTYSBURG

The Address at Gettysburg
..  was stonecarved
by gore

gored.. McClellan
could not harm them..
to win the war...
.. the lifeblood
of disemboweled teenagers..
.. legs cut off without
anesthesia..
.. blinded eyes..
widows.. fatherless children
... burned orchards..
eaten dogs.. pets commandeered
and butchered..
the people pooer and poorer
.. war profiteers richer and
richer

and more..
        and more
              and more

(to Gore Vidal and Al Gore, workers for peace)

Author's Notes/Comments: 

***

Ben Franklin did not want a carnivore
as the national bird. He ate no meat
til later in life when he wrote of Paris
that venison and venery had defeated him.
He wanted the turkey as a national bird.
Since those innocents have been
butchered in the billions.

the Jesus poem was inspired by a conversation with Winnie D. Hope

JR told writer of the firebombs. Father Mother God we ask special grace for all who have used the tools of violence. We ask that they be taken off their warhorses and shown the way of peace. to Wolf\ http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/votefraud.html Noam Chomsky is asking for a boycott of businesses which do business with Israel as long as their govt continues to keep Palestinians in concentration camps and invades Palestine with illegal settlements.

Footnote to Polish Horses, African Hearts: Cecil Rhodes' imperialist
racism was continued by Winston Churchill.
Rhodes' diamond empire DeBeers once controlled 95% of the world's
diamond market... a market built on the suffocation deaths of mine
workers, their brutal exploitation, a monopoly of supply control, the
use of force to wrest mineral rights (mineral rights still granted to
capitalist billionaires through e.g. a 19th Cent. American law giving
the rich mineral rights at $5 an acre).. Countless tens of thousands
died in a Boer War started by Rhodes. Even today a Rhodes Scholarship
goes to those expected to continue capitalist empire. The United
Nations still reflects the naked racist force of the past, as 4 white
nations and 1 Asian nation (no African.. no Arab, no Hispanic) have
veto power over billions of people. (to Alex Hershaft, whose
reparations money as a child concentration camp victim has been used
for his Great American Meatout) http://www.meatout.com

Footnote to FDR's War Memorial: It is said that FDR was forewarned of
the attack on Pearl Harbor, but felt the populace would support the
war only after an atrocity.

Footnote to Kum Phuc:
Kim Phuc's message to us all is 'first do no harm' Kim Phuc, the
little Vietnamese girl whose clothes were burned off her body by
napalm when she was 9 years old, ran until pain and thirst stopped
her. When she stopped a kind American soldier poured water on her
burns, but the steam only cooked them further. In the pain, she lost
consciousness. She had 14 months in the hospital and 17 operations,
with burns over 35% of her body. To listen to her
