Ceasefire

A white dove on an olive branch for peace.

Call for calm amidst world’s angst
Echoes of peace where battles bend
A pause in the storm, even though
Some seek to avenge the deep loss
Every soul yearns for peace to unfurl
For grass to grow where debris adorns
In ceasefire’s embrace hope ascends
Rebirth emerges as spring’s gentle sigh
Ever so timely for dreams to amplify.

  1. I felt like adding an ‘Amen’ to your heartfelt poem, Khaya – it feels like a prayer, one so many wish for but yet feels more remote than ever. So much suffering it is barely comprehensible. Hope has to be kept alive!

  2. Oh what a beautiful and spiritually moving acrostic Khaya! A heartfelt call for peace through a ceasefire. Love it sistah queen! 💖🙏🏼👑
