Model Of Peace

Bend your eyes and ears around
the sights and sounds of a
world at peace.

A squadron of oak trees on
a hill, laughing and playing acorns
with unsuspecting travelers below.

A phalanx of bison, wind whipping
tired eyes, conquer prairie after
prairie, victory assured.

Dozens of purple martins, dive
bombing this way and that,
enjoy a dinner flight.

A herd of underwater manatees,
precisely pinging echo-location,
submarine in unison, towards
their night grove.

Shooting stars, without targets,
celebrate our celestial

    Sounds like moments when your own world was at peace Jimbo...or at least in your imagination...Isaiah describes such a world during the thousand year reign on earth...Exquisite write which also reminds me of John Lennon's 'Imagine'...

    Absolutely brilliant. The metaphoric use of war symbols entwined in a poem about peace. Exceptional...going in my faves

    I feel the peace and tranquility as described in each verse. Funny how so few words, when so artistically strung together, can still paint such a vivid picture. Even though each scene is full of movement and motion, "peace" is still accomplished. Nice job.
