Whirled Peas

I'm waiting for non-
judgment day
Where " I love you"
Is what we say
To
Differences, idiosynch-
Cracies

We'll dance among the
Pleasant-
Trees
Share whirled peas
Sip humani-
Teas

Life could be
So trouble free
If we'd embrace
Our common-
ality
And imagine the
Possibili-
ties

This is offered for Peggy's prompt at Poetry Jam poetryjaam.blogspot.com to write about an impossible place.  With all the violence and anger lately, this seems pretty remote, however, I like to think that with hope all things are possible.  Happy weekend :-)

  2. We do crave for such a world, don't we? Your poem makes me feel that if we dream hard enough we can accept others as they are and turn this world into such a peaceful place.

  3. Such a happy title to go with the verses! I agree totally, people should live and let live and life would be so much nicer if we did not sweat the small stuff. Life's too short. :0)

  8. If we'd embrace
    Our commonality
    And imagine the
    Possibilities

    If only the world finds grounds of common agreement then possibilities of less conflicts can be forthcoming. Truly said Sara V!

  11. Wonderful wordsmithing - you have a real gift for taking rhyme (which I love) to the next level. Very cleverly written.

  12. Hi Wendy! Thank you so much! I enjoy rhyme very much, yet worry that it alienates some people. You just gave me a week of smile :-)

  13. The whole poem is great, but I personally find that the first stanza is outstanding. I love the message your poem conveys and the way you have expressed it. A delightful write, Sara!

    1. Hi Mrs-M! I was happy with the first stanza too. I'm glad it spoke to you as well. I Was concerned that the nuance of "non" before judgment might have been lost. Thank you so much! :-)
