GIVE PEACE A CHANCE

It is cold, very cold
freezing temperatures
a mild drizzle
yet unmindful
she stands silently
like a statue
under the isolated tree

all about her come and see
why such depth of silence
they wonder who is she
so very sweet and lovely
fine
a veritable divine

her eyes don't blink
statue stark
into the daylight distant
rare vision
no one knows
where she is looking

yet her mission
is just to draw
a large searching crowd
who will come and see
her blankly
looking into eternity
towards the distant horizon
wilderness
mind totally blissfully absent

all come and shed a tear
many say smile, O dear
she has a silent demeanour
yet she conveys
why this war and trouble

Give Peace a Chance
A tear does trickle

Then ups her umbrella
Mission complete
It now snows incessantly
She's conveyed her message

from Canada

You replaced it, maybe one day I will ask to run a workshop about bringing poets out of their comfort zone because it's a good thing, how do we know what we can achieve otherwise?
I will come back later to read this

Thank you...Teddy
