Peace

Peace is something I can find in many, many places: sitting on the dock, inner peace in the middle of a mosh pit, with friends at the bar, sitting at home by myself.

Peace has been hard for me to come by lately for many reason.

dVerse prompt today was peace!! Here's what I came up with while listening to a new punk CD that came in the mail today. Let me know what you think, please!! Thanks!!



Peace

Guitar in hand,
watered down whiskey in reach
Sitting cross-legged in a corner.
Notebook open, and a pen, in front of me.
Quiet, except for The Band playing
on low from my computer.
I lean back and smile.

  6. :) some of my best moments were had with guitar in hand, but never did I combine them with whiskey. And now I can barely recall a chord. Whiskey came in louder places with friend warmed peace. I like this piece.

  10. Always, our creative outlets bring us peace. I spent many hours as a teenager listening to Dylan and The Band.... Music is such a pure form of peace.

  12. Beautiful image; often I feel the same way and it serves as a source of inspiration.

    In my mind
    The music slips
    A silent note

  13. I've always found peace within music as well... it calms your soul and beats to the rhythm of your heart.

  15. Sounds like you found it. Peace is an indiviual thing, and we each find it in our own way, in our own time.

  16. Peace and punk - not a combination that immediately springs to mind, but we all find peace in our own ways. Sometimes I love strumming my stress away.
