November Peace Challenge: Love Thy Enemy


* Tears flow from hateful eyes too.

But I suspect our hearts, like flowers,

grow big and strong with the waters of loving-kindness.

Chill our words not our voice

It is rain that grows flowers, not ice

flowers in rain

“How cold is a heart
When it’s warmth that it seeks?”
Sting, Sister Moon

      Thanks Kozo 🙂 I like that. The Be for Peace rainbow connection!
      This post won’t look nearly as good when the snowflakes disappear, but it was fun to work on ;~)
