Planet earth needs a place to rest
Where birds sing and preen each knows what’s best
Order is clear all know their place
Thanksgiving presides all sit in grace

It may not last forever this crystalized glee
Though it is a foundation of peace harmony
Connection to others cells all slow down
Resting acceptance all over each town

Perspective that’s special grounded serene
Life in a dream state without any mean
The wealth that’s engendered richness and love
Starts from within grows just because

It lives deep inside all of our cells
Seated in belly where your center dwells
Humanity does not need so much strife
Varietal wars occupying so much of life

Longing for peace and ongoing respite
How might we hold and keep it in sight
Peace and tranquility moments’ sublime
Enjoy aspiring rest in the time

What is your peace quotient? How much of your life is lived
in a state of peace? What guidance or coaching would you have
for others about how to achieve it? Do you think it of value
as an aspiration? Why? Why not?
