Released From Agenda Terror Paranoia - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

Poetry Against Terror
is an artistic protest
a poetic protest
this is not an Arab Spring
this is a Poetic Spring
poets drinking deep
from wells of wisdom
gifting phrase peace

happiness to all people
peace be among all people
terror is
a contemporary
tragedy
a peace protest

must be written
marched sung
into world psyche
beautified choice
to live free of fear
is an easier option
for free spirit poets
than various sections

of public terrorized
minds media preyed
upon public paralyzed
with fear splattered
mass media images
therefore the decision

to refuse fear renounce fear;

to accept the cards
will fall as cards may
is accepting life
as it comes;
it is not the duration
years in our lives
which time matter
it is the quality;

intensity attempts
at living dreams
which determines;
how birth bright
our pulse stars shine
on satin darkest nights;

even a single star
shining on an overcast
night shines hope bright...

Poetry Against Terror
is a first waking single star
a large collective work
poetic voices of poets
raised chanting peace
refusing renouncing fear
originating from different
countries scattered worldwide

who will stand up
who will speak aloud
who will promote peace
but without hatred
without hatred against
pitiful bloody madness terror

terror
terrorized
Poetry Against Terror

64 Poets from 43 countries
lent their pens spent their time
in the effort to defuse terror
to nullify terrorist power
in peace to stand against terror
in love to stand against terror
to spread instead blessings of peace
to embrace peace love hope for all humanity...

Fabrizio Frosini has declared

'we—poets of the world—wish
to make our voices resonate
in the minds and hearts
of all women and men
who refuse to be silenced
by hate and violence.'

    I like the way this series of poems came together, the gift Hemingway spoke of when a theme writes itself, with the strength in an ending written by another artist sharing similar sentiments. (Report) Reply
