Peace Is Something You Make

Peace is not something you wish for; It's something you make, Something you do, Something you are, And something you give away. --Robert Fulghum

Last Sunday at Karma Kitchen the Theme-of-the-Day was Peace and guests who wandered through the door were invited to reflect on a simple question:

"Where do you find peace?"
Their thoughtful responses were collected collage-style they can be glimpsed in the photo -- and in the beautiful co-created poem below that weaves them together....

I find peace in
Sunshine and grass
Campfire, smoke
Night sky, silence
My mother, music, children
The sound of ocean waves


I find peace

Where there is unconditional love
Higher knowledge and awareness

I find peace sitting atop a mountain
Breathing. Watching the sunset,
Sunrise, feathered birds ...

I find peace when I see my love sleeping
The creation of a home
Sharing life with loved ones
Connection with the world

Peace comes with patience

In early morning
Swimming in the light of dawn
To feel like this always...

Let go completely and
You will be completely
At peace.
