Raising Peace ... a poem by Anne Selden Annab

Synergisms: Poster has a photograph of five children raising a blue and white flag with a peace symbol overall. One child at right is crouched at the base of the flagpole while the other four are in a line on the other side of the pole helping to raise it up. The background is dominated by blue sky.

     Raising Peace

Raising a child
is to swoop
every direction

Raising peace
is to be still

Raising a child
is to want to hug
and kiss the one you bicker with

Raising peace
is not.

Raising a child
is to reach for the stars

Raising peace
is to reach reasonable
