World Book Day: Peace Poems

It’s World Book Day, but along with many others, I’m sure, my thoughts and heart lie with the people of Ukraine today.

Therefore the poems I will share will all be peace poems.

Snow

Swirling slowly

in lilting flight,

as cold as stars,

the soundless white

.

of drifting feathers

spreading wings,

to sing the songs

that snowflakes sing,

.

of how small gifts

of peace and light

can change the world

in just one night.
