The winds whispered and then they howled,
The thunder clapped and began to roar,
The lightning danced, throwing fire darts in mad glee,
The Earth rumbled in the quake,
It’s groaning and shivering,
A disheartened statement from deep tectonic plates.
We thought that all would be rendered asunder…..
…..But then came The voice and whispered into the ravaged Earth,
Dripping red with blood,
Peace! Be still!
……and the Earth stood still.
May the peace that transcends common understanding,
Be your portion today and always.
