Written: dVerse Poets: War for peace – or just hard work?
Use contrasts, use metaphors, use your senses smells, play on idioms. Use any form or any trick you like but make us long for peace not just hate war. Make me love peace, not just peacefulness. What’s the taste of peace, the smell, the color? Is peace of night or something brought by day? Remember contrasts, write in chiaroscuro, show attractiveness in light.
A drift of white
In a vast blue sky, cotton
candy sweet, soft pink
silver smile, pellucid eyes
absorbing kind green
Offer your hand; I will grasp it.
