Carpe Diem Haiku The World

Sun and clouds above
Pigeons circling in between
We enjoy the ground

Desires quenched
No one left hungry or naked
This world is enough

The watching angel
At this world’s periphery
Lost the flaming sword

No wars is fiction
But in our deeply felt dreams
This beautiful world

  1. fabulous pix, and I agree: 'no wars is fiction'

  2. Will there ever be a world without wars? Maybe not in this life, but maybe in our next life? Into the next dimension in which we can create our own world full of harmony and unconditional love.

    1. Thank you! I also hope for such a development, but someone said that during the last 5000 years only about 250 years were without a recorded war somewhere. Dr. Martin Luther said: "Even if tomorrow the world would perish, I'd plant an apple tree today!"
      If you look at my brother's and SIL's garden, you see some fresh green trees and the fir trees in the back. There used to be a forest, which had to be cut down because of the bark beetle. The ground looked like after a war had raged. But nature resuscitates itself, if we leave her alone.
      Let's hope for a world without wars and a revitalized nature!

  3. Wonderful ... and a world without war would indeed be fine... when you come from a country that was in constant war for 300 years (more or less) and now have had peace for 200 years I can see the advantages.
