What If?

What If?

What if angry words
vanished like
soap bubbles
and punches landed light
as butterfly kisses?
What if guns
fired marshmallow bullets,
and bombs burst
into feather clouds
sending us into fits
of giggles?
What if
we all died

~ Anna Grossnickle Hines, 
from Peaceful Pieces: 
Poems and Quilts About Peace

Today is the International Day of Peace. The United Nations General Assembly has declared this a day "devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples." I thought this was an appropriate poem for the occasion. Wishing you all a peaceful day!
