Peace

Mundane in significance
Stellar make up, jubilant in feelings
Friendly beyond expectations
Good friends are rare beings

Amity an element so elusive
Rollicking and playing games
Exhibiting forms so passive
Takes efforts to stake a claim

Other times easy to come by
Relationships extending for life
Stimulant to good natured high
Not given to having to strive

Of friends, neighbors and countries
Among souls of various extractions
Of different creeds and calling that vary
Must there be untold conflagrations?

  4. Not always the easiest to find
    As many tend to unwind
    But there are one or two
    That always stick with you

  7. So true - good friends are rare beings. Love the question you ask in the last stanza......I look forward to the time when humans recognize that other people are simply humans, too, all with the same hopes and dreams.......good one, Hank. And timely, in these turbulent days......
