Peace

praying for peace at Christmas

peace
is the absence of conflict;
or
peace
is a spiritual connection;
or better still
peace
is a way of living,
a commitment to something important;
but
peace
as a wild eyed radical
screaming its way
to revolution
isn’t quite the peace
we had in mind….
is it?
we light a candle for peace.
