Collaboration for Peace – 44

Mish and I are back after our holiday hiatus with another collaboration.

This week Mish provided the photo that inspired my words. Hope it inspires you also.

Reach Up, Reach Out

I reach up
Spread my arms
To embrace the sky

The sky that looks
Down on every person –
Like and unlike me

Every person receives
Equal share of the day
And the night

The sun and stars
The moon lights the
Corners of darkness

Regardless of color or shape
Weeping or joy
We’re all the same

I reach out
To embrace the world
That the sky looks
Down upon in peace
