Seeking Peace ~

“LOVE IN WAITING AT THE BACK!” a poem a.k.a.: “Seeking Peace!” a.k.a.: “Every Storm Cloud Has A Peaceful Lining!” July 8, 2019 (Monday)*

There are people I know – who seek many things,

Even “capable”-and-“helpful” Princes and Kings,

But – whatever you seek, whatever’s-hoped-[for]-here,

I’ve said it before; I’ve said it, my Dear:

SEEKING-“HERE,” I’M-AFRAID – N E V E R HELPS-YOU TO-FIND,

A N Y T H I N G-THAT-MIGHT GIVE-YOU PEACE OF-MIND!

Yet-“Peace,” or Peace-of-Mind has more value than any,

Thing-you-can-imagine YET still! so-many,

Well-meaning folks, with “Hearts of Gold,”

Find only “wastelands,” I am told!

So, STILL – staying-where-you-are I-think’s-good-advice,

And MAKE THE BEST OF “IT,” for Sugar-and-spice,

Is: “Wherever-You’re-AT,” for “the swift flying years,”

(Seem-to) bring each of us challenge, and “each of us tears!”

And, if-you-value-PEACE, the-closest-thing-to-it-you’ll-possess,

Is IN YOUR BACK YARD, even-if-it’s a mess,

So, IF it seems a mess, then CLEAN IT UP!

    Winter forms our character and brings out our best Winter is a season of recovery and preparation Winter is not a season, it’s a celebration Of what’s new to come Winter is the time for comfort For good food and warmth For the touch of a friendly hand And for a talk beside the fire […]
  • We shall see.’ ~ WAS IT A THREAT?
    From Poona, I went to Rajkot and Porbandar, where I had to meet my brother’s widow and other relatives. During the Satyagraha in South Africa, I had altered my style of dress to make it more in keeping with that of the indentured labourers, and in England also I had adhered to the same style […]
  • SHANTINIKETAN ~ Gandhi
    From Rajkot, I proceeded to Shantiniketan. The teachers and students overwhelmed me with affection. The reception was a beautiful combination of simplicity, art and love. It was here I met Kakasaheb Kalelkar for the first time. I did not know then why Kalelkar was called ‘Kakasaheb’. But I learnt later on that Sjt. Keshavrao Deshpande, […]
  • Yes I am with you always, until the very end of time ~
    Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence. Love others as well as you love yourself.

You-MIGHT-get-a-kitten! or a-pup,

But! Even-a-pet which you SEEK to acquire,

Is never as good – as WAITING, while-The-Fire,

Subsides! FOR – They-always DO,

And, then! Mysteriously! a-pet might-come to-you,

And-The-Circumstances YOU-THOUGHT couldn’t-yield-PEACE,

Will-seem-to “smooth-out,” and, at the very-leas[t],

You’ll-have your-“familiar” set-of- familiar-chores,

Some difficult neighbors, maybe-”boring?”-labors, and familiar-stores!

AND – KNOW-WHAT’S-IN-STORE-FOR-YOU WILL-NEVER-OFFER-PEACE,

UNLESS Y O U-MAKE-PEACE-WITH-IT-ALL!

POTENTIAL-TRIALS-NEVER-CEASE!

POSTNOTE: So, don’t seek for no kitten; one will come PRETTY SOON! Just-get-cha (1) disinfectant; (2) a hopeful heart; and (3) a broom!

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
