  Whatever’s happening in the world, in all our lives, whoever you are I feel the will to say   I Wish You Peace!

Love & Hate

Hate; a verb, an abstract noun

That we may give our power,

Love; a verb, an abstract noun

That is hate’s funeral pyre.

Just Accords

For the families

may past wrongs come to light,

may past wrongs stay past.
