Still

70 years cranes s

A year ago I posted this mandala, a continuing hope for peace and healing.

70 years cranes close up s

It marked 70 years since the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.

Death continues to walk beside and between us.

70 years s

no meaning no sense
words are lost   is there a way
to stop this bleeding

cranes s

This is our cry.
This is our prayer.
Peace in the world.

    Oh Kerfe – I can’t turn off CNN – stunned at the horrific news once again. Trying to focus on peace and love and goodness and kindness and cherishing every one of those moments…….. We just don’t know how many we will have. Thank you for sharing so much beauty and love and peace in a world crying for it.

    Boy. If we could just continue to make enough beauty to push the evil out, to silence it and banish it forever. Thanks for your beautiful response to an event becoming all too common.
