War & Peace

 

WAR

Provocation has tooth and nail-

Forces on Borders will respond.

Bloodshed on both sides will not fail.

Provocation has tooth and nail-

Imprisoned truth won’t get a bail.

Bellicose sides will never bond-

Provocation has tooth and nail-

Forces on Borders will respond.

 

PEACE

Seeds of light are not from above-

They can be grown within as blooms.

Once you sow this you will reap love.

Seeds of light are not from above-

Inside nestles the little Dove.

It sings away the pall of gloom-

Seeds of light are not from above-

They can be grown within as blooms.

  1. Wow. I have never seen that form before. The music in it is brilliant—something like rocking you to sleep with beautiful lines while yet writing of war. Fascinating.

  2. This is so beautiful, Sumana 🙂 especially love; “Seeds of light are not from above- they can be grown within as blooms.”❤️

  3. Beautifully expressed Sumana. I remember Ghandi was a man of peace and wanted Hindu, Muslim and Sikh all together in harmony but sadly that was not to be. Western countries think the same way now by accepting refugees from other countries only to see them turn on their benefactors.

  4. This is so true, and echos well:

    Seeds of light are not from above-
    They can be grown within as blooms.

    A powerful piece, Sumana!

Thank You :)
