  1. Played around with this all afternoon. Not quite a poem - probably more a statement - but at least I addressed the notion and maybe that counts too.

  3. Gay, this is so very beautiful. I have no idea how you manage to accomplish such a thing....but it needs to be a wall hanging and also to have a greater audience. Kudos!

    1. I know Grace - we are all so much more alike than we are different..how do we end this need for tribal groups and alienation. So unnecessary.

  11. "And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on, So that I come again to my father's house in peace; then shall the LORD be my God:" (Genesis, 28:20-21)

  13. so creatively done...love this...and the message a simple one....when we let go of all our unnecessary focuses, all of our valueless characteristics... when we let go and just focus on living..then we can maybe, for once, actually achieving peace....so very well said

  15. "deep desire
    buried in
    every heart
    yearning
    learning . . ."

    True, true, and A-z of how to learn,
    Amen!
    Beauty-full word art and I like your peace globe as well.

  16. I love this, got so much from reading it. A prayer one moment, an incantation next, and at the end what it always was: a very fine piece of poetry with a job to do - which it did well. The beauty of it was matched by the lovely images.

  17. I first read this the way I think you meant us to, and then I read it horizontally, it was very interesting both ways.

  23. Wow, this is to creative, Gay...but then I would expect this from you. Absolutely lovely! Overwhelmingly so.

    And the message? "When we let go...." yes....and it's so hard to do. but there is no Peace without doing so.

    Lovely, Gay...
