A Prayer to Peace

© July 9, 2011

Holy Peace,
come to us,
abide with us,
dwell in our hearts
now
and forever
we pray.

Spirit of Peace,
You are as gentle
as a butterfly ~
and
as elusive.

You appear
unexpectedly ~
catching us
by surprise ~
suddenly
the scent
of heaven
surrounds us;
we are enwrapped
in bliss.

In that sacred
silence
our souls
taste
the calm
and comforting
nectar
of eternity;
a serenity
surpassing
all understanding ~

It vanishes
in an instant,
leaving us
hungering
for another sip
of that sweetness.

Filled
with loving longing
our hearts flutter
in pursuit of You.
