A little bird sat outside my window
and asked my cat…
why is the world such a mess
this is life not a test?
The cat replied
with a sad sigh…
They don’t know how to live in peace
wrinkles in time have been creased
with tension and fear
of what’s happened before and what’s happening here.
Someone should change it! shouted a mouse
the tiniest of creatures headed for the house.
No one can change it replied a grasshopper
slicing the grass like a karate chopper.
It’s so sad and I feel so bad
the little bird tucked its head in it’s wing
it no longer felt the urge to sing.
The owl said from his perch…Maybe one alone can’t make a change
but a few of us can begin to rearrange
setting things upright or maybe sideways they should be
since a new way of seeing
is what I think we need.
Here! here! said the dog and the frog
who began to croak even though he thought he had a sore throat
he found he felt fine
that things could turn on a dime
the birds began to chime
in as the crickets came out in symphony
the concert and
to join the peace rally
neighborhoods parks and
That day a change began to happen
they came together
not in protest
but in peace and ease
not against what they hate
no one is happy in that state.
standing for something
not against something else
pushed against the rails and
fighting all the time
is not the way for Peace to find
you or you it.
Don’t have a fit.
Just breathe in and out
Side by side
a hippie little ride
of peace love and happiness
believing in something better
sooner rather than later.
Today’s free verse hippie poetry written from my heart to yours. I hope you dig it friend. And I hope you’ll stop by again tomorrow. Much PEACE LOVE HAPPINESS~
