* 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

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

words' resisters

in distant climes..

Mahatma Gandhi

and Martin Luther King

Dorothy Day

PLATTSBURGH MIRACLE



1970, the Fifth of May

with those at Kent State

They will march to

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.

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.

NOTE OF THRUSH



In the forest so plush

In the forest so lush

near the cataract's gush

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

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

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.

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
