The Peace on Terrorism

this nuclear body explodes
every cell of being radiates
all out war
head stars shoot
hit at hate
flamed from the invisible blood line
that threads through all the ages
sacred servant to the three wise monkeys -
in incessant metamorphosis
the pallid sun greys out
a flurry of snow falls
silently touches
the snarled face of winter
momentary contact
then dissolves as tears
the soft kiss continues
blanket and bandage -
bringing light
