Daily missive for the 7th of June.~ Hand of peace.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for the 7th of June.
Hand of peace.

Take my hand
As it is offered
Not sliced off at the wrist
Curled up in a fist
But open and welcoming
Listen to my heart
It has an insistent beat
A contagious rhythm
Not ripped from my chest
To lie at your feet
Hot and steaming
When held in mind
It is a thing of beauty
Acceptance is not a bargain
But a deliverance
Friendship is a
Matter of trust
Not just a promise
An action without prejudice
Or reward
Give me satisfaction
Without resort to a sword
Take my word
It is the most honest thing
I possess
When believed
This is not about popularity
Or kudos
Are we too jaded
By faded ironies
To reconcile our truths
With a clasped hand
A good heart and welcoming smile
Such positive regard
Will reap a whirlwind
If repeated
Not just by the few
But by the many.
