A Little Peace - Poem by David Harris

As I was walking slowly by
a church on Sunday morn
I could hear voices raised
in praise for the lord above.
The voices were sweet and soft,
but loud enough for the lord to hear,
as the praises they were singing
drifted through the air.
Not a single voice
was out of tune
as they sang out there.
When the voices went quiet,
a serine silence drifted down
over everything and everyone around.
God was answering their prayers
for a little peace everywhere today.

    This is a very nice and wonderful piece that i would like to hold on everyday, for it is in praising that we release our faith in God. I was so overhelmed reading this, that i felt i was there also praising.Oh, thanks for this, David, so wonderfully well penned. (Report) Reply

    I love this piece David, it clearly identifys what the Lord can do. He does answer prayers and sometimes immediately as we can see here in your delightful poem. The sound of the voices praying to the Lord, I hear the crisp sound they generated, so beautiful and feeling and the serenity of peace hovering over them as they were covered by the wings of angels, it is my hope that everyone that reads this divine piece of writing has a similar experience for it is heavenly David. Thankyou so much for writing this and sharing it David, and that's what it's all about--the sharing, the sharing, the sharing. God Bless you, you are one of God's messengers and don't you forget that, what you genereated here is the work of God, he used you, that's right you are the vessel he chose to use and there you were open to the Lord. Praise him and his son Jesus, praise him, praise him, thankyou yes thankyou Jesus, thankyou for David--Melvina-- (Report) Reply

    Quality work, David...I like the Sunday Morning tone you set...reminds me of going to Church with my parents....We'd walk up Mt.Joy Place, and as we did, we'd hear the chiming of the pre-Mass Church bells echoing around us, and ostensibly through me! Gave me chills, at times...Afterwards, and as you very eloquently expressed in this fine Poem, yes...there was a sacred type of silence in the air....One that spoke of Peace...Solid Crafting, Mr. Haris...
