On April 11th, we offered a prompt with the theme: "Where does one find inner peace?" We offered some choices (spending time in nature, writing/reading, meditation, exercise/sports, cooking, volunteering), or, another not mentioned on the list. Poets were required to write a poem in 16 lines or a micro-passage. Out of all the spectacular responses we received, 3 poets touched our inner spirit and their poems resonated.
The miraculous power of water melts the weight of feelings in the mirror of the soul... Countless rays of light dance on the surface... I see the water, I dive with the look in her until I become a river... Then... Feelings are floating without weight...intention... no desire to return... No pain... The truth of the infinite expanse of sparks bathing on the moon at the dawn that longs for dreams... © Gordana Andonovska
"The Soul Rest" The soul needs rest the soul needs inner peace And I can find it in nature Where I don't hear noise Where I hear music where I am not insulted Where I am not judged. In nature, I find a quiet corner To regain myself To not give back hate I meditate and I realize All I want is staying far away From people who point the a finger to me. I am tired of being the black sheep I am tired of being seen As the only persons with sins. © Bogdana Gageanu
"Where do you find inner peace?"
Peace is only in the Nature Its beauty gives inner peace to call creatures. Endless blue sky with silvery clouds Unrest blue waves of ocean Loving sounds of beautiful birds Myriad colors of dancing flowers All gives me inner peace Golden rays of sunshine and sunset Diamond drops on the grasses in winter morning Green lands with cereal and pulses Solitude in the dense forest All give me inner peace.
