Clean, white snow
piling up outside my window
Inspiring music turned up
The road to peace is not a long one
but it is a deep one
With tentacles that reach inside the bone and sinew of each person
To the core
It is a place.
And I like to go there
It is still
Not a creed or background or a philosophy
It is a location
And in you
Wherever you find your peace today, remember this -
Deep and abiding peace is always rooted in love
Waiting to seep out of our pores and into the lives of others
who need it
Any love found under the snow -
especially the unconditional kind......
Always manifests as peace to the world.
