Haiku: Peaceful Waters

white clouds fold in prayer
peaceful waters

We would like to dedicate this post to the victims of today’s attack outside Finsbury Park mosque (London) and their families and friends, to the peaceful actions of imam Mohammed Mahmoud who appealed for calm and to peace and understanding among all the people who share this amazing earth.

We wish everyone a blessed and peaceful week.

With love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

  1. A wonderful poem with the photo of the prayerful clouds in such a pure blue sky. I too salute the imam and his appeal for calm and send love and comfort to those who suffer from this crazy act that is being repeated all too often in all too many places. Once would be too much!
