:Peace on the Edge

Peace on the Edge

Everything has a dual nature
Our hearts are two
Our prayer place is built of two
The meeting of two worlds
Like a city
Drawn together

If we could only make the peace prayers just right
Twice
The world would be redeemed

Master of all the worlds
All the prayers are peace
Drip drip dripping
But the words have no lift

The lower worlds are bestirring themselves
The Great Heart of the World longs for peace

We are waiting for the true persons of compassion
You know who they are

With one you get a day
With seven a week
Thirty a month

May great peace flow from the upper worlds
Like a fountain
It will be beautiful
Like our lies

But for now save us
For a few more
Twenty-four
Hours
