Spring happens, despite.
Unable to change whole world,
ponder one flower.
Beyond the thump of war drums,
doves of peace sing their hearts out.
Reblogged this on The Militant Negro™.
Lovely Sarah. Hope you are well.

Thank you, Andrew. I’m fine — sort of. Have been in hiding and recharging my batteries. I’m glad to see you’re still blogging, as the last post I read of yours before I took a couple of weeks off, was that you were considering dumping your blog. Presumably people have persuaded you otherwise. You would be a sad loss to Blogland. Will do a catch up read soon 🙂
Thank you for your kind words. I will try to stick it out. Have a wonderful week.
And you have a wonderful week, too 🙂
We find peace and beauty where we can, dear friend. Concentrate on the gifts we’ve been given, and hope the ugliness is eradicated soon. Sending you warm wishes from across the Pond.
Thank you, my dear friend. I’ve been taking a sabbatical from Blogland, as was feeling overwhelmed by life. Just telling you this, in case you felt deserted. I’ve some catch-up commenting to do on your blog, although have read your last 3 posts on my phone via email. Hope to get over to yours soon. Sending you warm wishes across the Pond, too 🙂
This is beautiful in every way xxxxxxxxxxx

You are so welcome my lovely Sarah xxxx
“Beyond the thump/TRump of war drums”: brilliant word choice, Sarah!
I’m thinking you’re going to enjoy my satiral novel, Leigh, and am sure you’ll appreciate some of the analogies I’ve drawn in it! Funnily enough, I hadn’t thought of thump/TRump, but the word choice here might easily have emanated from my subconscious!
Such pure beauty, Sarah. A very thoughtful poem too. 🙂
Thank you, Sylvia 🙂
I’ve been away too! Beautiful Sarah!
Hello, dear Cybele. Lovely to have you visit. I’m pleased you liked my tanka 🙂 I’m still not properly back. Thought I was, until I wasn’t again for nearly a week. Now the sun is shining (heatwave in SE UK for the last few days), I’ve added gardening to the list of diversions from blogging. I’m having difficulty focusing on finishing my novel, too. Only have a few pages to go, but I think the closing pages of a book are as important as the opening ones. Nobody wants to read an author more than once, if that author rushes their finales and leaves the reader feeling shortchanged. It’s such a responsibility getting it right.
