Pass this Peace to Man

colorful hummingbirds
flutter and nibble berries…
     envious, I watch

the gift of freedom
Ma Nature gives her creatures…
     we fight for our rights

animal kingdom
finds harmony in nature…
     pass this peace to man

For Sidney Lee Ann’s “Haiku from the Heart” 
Traditional Haiku, 5-7-5
By Carolyn Devonshire
This haiku is inspired by the free spirit of animals and how I wish we could enjoy the harmony nature has bestowed upon them

    Carolyn, this may be because with so much of our intellectual growth we loose touch with mother nature and once head rules we humans become so greedy.. become hoarders of everything, with very little consideration for fellow human beings. Great message for us humans here!! love to you, gautami

    Amen, Carolyn!! Our learning classroom is immediately outside our kitchen windows, right?...I find this so powerful and it inspires me to "just love!" Always a pleasure when you stop over to read my honor!...I am currently working (slowly) on a series of Holocaust poems...quite possibly one or two a month...Love, Gwendolen
