Sound of Peace

In a park, a child

spins a pinwheel,

About these ads

and the whole planet

spins with him.

His mother

is wrapped up

in his smile,

as the light of the day

gets hotter.

About these ads

Beyond them

are some empty chairs;

limbs of trees

touch the ground.

The child's

explosion of laughter

is a cosmic sound.
