Greetings, dear poets and storytellers.
I hope you are well, or as well as one can be considering the state of our world.
In my case—and likely in the case of most people, not living under a rock—I can’t
stop thinking about loss and worrying about what’s happening in the Ukraine. With that in mind, I feel it’s appropriate to explore
the normal, nonwarring condition of a nation, group of nations, or the world.
an agreement or treaty between warring or antagonistic nations, groups, etc.,
to end hostilities and abstain from further fighting or antagonism.
a state of mutual harmony between people or groups, especially in personal
the normal freedom from civil commotion and violence of a community; public order
cessation of or freedom from any strife or dissension.
freedom of the mind from annoyance, distraction, anxiety, an obsession, etc.; tranquility;
a state of tranquility or serenity.
a state or condition conducive to, proceeding from, or characterized by tranquility.
9. silence; stillness.
So, today’s optional prompt is to spend a few moments considering the word Peace... and then write poetry or prose inspired by the thoughts that come to mind. As always, if this prompt doesn’t speak to your muse, you are more than welcome to share a piece of poetry or prose of your choosing. Said piece can be new or old, fiction or nonfiction, short or longish (prose pieces should be 369 words or fewer). Share the direct link to your post. One link per participant. After you add your words, remember to visit other writers and comment on the ink they have shared.
week, for those looking for a prompt, Rommy
will invite us to write about Heroes, however we define the term.
