CRIES FOR PEACE



Cries for peace heard loud 
War mongers, rifles lifted 
Silence established!

ANGELS OF DARKNESS



God’s love they say preach
Enlightenment to bring wish
Darkness them follows!

REFUGEES






Come by the thousands

Hungry, desperate, each day

Greece's agony mounts!*


------------


Home lost, new home found

Distant shores opening arms

Tears flooding the seas

*Thousands of refugees and illegal immigrants enter Greece 
each day in search of a better future. Greece, despite its economic 
crisis and with an unemployment near 30% and salaries and pensions
 down by 40% helps the best way it can. Europe watches as more than 
two million of these unfortunate people live inside our country of ten million.

War...

War…
     By Dane Smith-Johnsen

War is good for greed.
Hatred!  Repugnance.  And death…
It reinstates need.

War Flower

seeded in battle
growing amongst the death mass
weep
no longer in grief

blooming blooming high
veiny stem all aglitter
she
will outlive your fray

trusting the true gale
in her dance she instills mirth
cry
for the joys of life

The Surest Path to Peace

The path to your peace,
Is not to lay down your arms,
But hold them outstretched.

Abandon your wars,
Your sacred prejudices,
To live born again.

In another's arms,
Surrender yourself to love,
And peace will find you.

Bio in Short

It's been a good run
To the back side of sixty,
The short side of time.

First Hollywood kiss
Behind a pink crepe myrtle.
Thanks, Patsy Werner.

High school was okay.
Didn't help me to focus;
So, my mind wandered.

Surfed Bonzai Pipeline,
Big waves break into lava.
What made me do it?

Vietnam jungles.
I wondered why I was there.
America lost.

Smoking pot. Stereo.
Good fun in the seventies.
Psychedelics too.

And three wives later,
I finally found true love.
We're still together.

My destitute heart,
Saved by the sweetest angel.
I love you, Sandy.

Sooners are my team.
Most winning football program
In the Modern Era.

I am retired now.
But I have plenty to do.
Golf, primarily.

I've been writing more.
Perhaps I will write a book.
I have many tales.

I'd chase young girls; but,
Girls with a "grampa" fetish
Are so hard to find.

If I am lucky,
I will just drop dead one day.
With my peace of mind.

Yes, made a good run
To the back side of sixty,
The short side of time.

WAR AND PONDER HAIKU'S

Mother's hope shot!
Who will rescue tomorrow?
Unending woe...
..............................................
Midnight town crier!
Women and children take cover
Men running to war.
..............................................
Dry leaf swaying down
Looking from where it falls
Fresh leaves, take caution.
.............................................
Not minding the meat,
Isolated to ponder,
Woeing solution. 
...........................................
Plates without hope
war came frowning
never to smile.
