Surfacing Peace

The hope for peace
or longing for it--
from wherever it arises
to wherever it echoes--
lingers strong in my
heart and mind.

In the depths for a period,
it returns to the surface
again and again,
if but for a moment,
offering a fleeting invitation,
a glimpse of a greater vision,
as if to remind me of
the way it is supposed to be,
the way it was intended to be,
the way it is yet to be,
the way I am called to be.

Elusive it seems,
but ever accessible.
Available but seeking
to be sought,
to be found,
to be embraced,
to be lived.
