Close Battle

     The world 
is something we 
    take delight in 
at times 
    We are moving along the track
   Did you ever take the powers of light 
and touch them 
with the tip of your fingers?
Automatic writing 
the surrealist 
thing 
      is something one 
can delight in 
   If you think 
long and hard enough 
    you will find 
joy has captured you 
Yes, and if you can take delight in
that joy 
Then you will realize
Peace is coming to us all
