Here on Real Toads, we will deviate from the usual Open Link, which allows a poem of your choice, in favour of a poem or post dedicated to the subject of PEACE. I ask that we all enter into the spirit of Blog4Peace, and make a concerted effort to visit as many blogs as possible today. Feel free to use our Real Toads Blog4Peace banner, or create your own with a template from Mimi's site. Please link up your poems, old or new, and give peace a chance - it's better than the alternative.
Thank you for helping us to participate in this Peace Event, Kerry.
You are very welcome. Let us be a place of positive energy today, and add our voices to the call for peace.
My thanks go to Mimi for including us in her global initiative - I hope today proves the success of her Blog4Peace drive.
I did some research, let it percolate, and came up with a much shorter poem than I expected, but I'm happy with it, although I'm sorry it's not a response to Mimi's question: "What do I want my world to look like?"
I am delighted with the 6 continents and 182 countries blogging for peace.
here's to a peaceful Monday, and every next day... a peaceful world. xo to Toads! Marian
Hi Kerry -- If what I've posted is inappropriate for the theme -- my poem is about the peace we suffer because of war -- then feel free to remove it. A better peace to all -- Brendan
Kerry, Shay was running late and asked me to link her poem, so I did. As with all her stuff, I think you can find many things in it, including an answer to the question being asked(what do I want my world to look like) if you look, but if you feel it is out of place here, please remove, and I will explain it to her when she gets home from work.
Thanks for this opportunity to say a word about something that matters to us all, Kerry. Though I pondered this all weekend, I ended up with just a few words, but then, what I want is pretty simple. ;_)
I have no intention of disrupting the peace of the garden today by swooping down and eradicating posts which so obviously do not relate to the theme of peace, but you will understand if I do not comment on them, and give my attention to those who have.
Hi Toads! First link attempt didn't work--I hope the second one does. Also hope my poem, "Together At Last" fits today's theme!
Peace, brothers & sisters.
Thank you Kerry. What an important subject for today. Peace to you and all the toads of the garden.
it has to start somewhere... an ever-timely linkup, Kerry ~
I second that: "it has to start somewhere!"
What a worthwhile focus! May it begin with us. Thanks for this, Kerry.
Peace be with you, Toads!
Before we "go in peace" we must find it! That is what my poem is about. I probably won't make all the rounds tonight, but will finish up in the morning.
Thanks for yesterday's focus on peace!
Forgot to leave a link to a poem that I wrote, posted at http://www.chapterandverse.ca/poetry/246-2009on-the-anniversary-of-montreal-bed-in.html .
I love to see the garden full and flowing with such peaceful intentional works!! ☮ to all!
