originally, this began with the intention to write a poem a day on peace. To create a year of peace poems that speak to what it means for me to be at peace, in my heart, in my life, in my world.

I had chosen to begin on July 25th because it was my father’s birthday. My father was a poet, a lover of words, a beautiful writer and an avid reader. He taught me alot about expressing myself through writing, and instilled in me the love of the written word.

As I’ve found myself not writing poems just about peace, I’ve decided to expand the poetry I write if only to give myself a creative nudge every day to step outside my writers blocks…

I’ll add a few links and videos I find on my journey — but mostly, this is my creative prompt to get me writing poetry everyday.

Which doesn’t mean it will all be rhyming and iambic pentameter. In fact, the likelihood of rhymes and a specific rhythm is particularly slim.

This is free form. Free flowing. Free.

  1. Hi Louise! Just read your lovely FIRST poem and really looking forward to reading more. Fabulous! MAY PEACE PREVAIL ON EARTH!

  2. Thank you for this beautiful tearful morning reminder to choose Love. Sometimes I get so busy with the doing I forget what’s really here, and what’s really (not) happening.

    • ❤ Thank you Alison — I followed you from Leigh’s blog and am so grateful I did! I love the reminder you gave of “What if there is no problem?” — I have forgotten to ask myself that lately! And your photos are stunning. Enjoy YVR — I wish you well from this side of the Rockies.

      • Apparently the Mystery is sending messages all over the place, as usual, to those that ‘need’ them eh 🙂 I am in awe of synchronicity and the miraculous nature of life, of everything.
        Thanks re the photos. I got a new camera yesterday – very exciting.
        Alison ❤
