Peace, Lemon Drizzle Cake and Lavender

1    I have a collection of poems called ‘Poems for Peace’ which I have had since 1986 and it seems appropriate to give you this one today.

Peace – A Piece of Cake by Zara Garrod

Peace needs no poppies (plastic or paper),
Peace needs no pipe or hate cultivator,
Peace needs no power, posters or peril,
Peace is the flower, fruition and fuel.

Peace is tranquility, amity, harmony
Peace is humanity, sanity, life.
Peace needs no anthem, peace is a lullaby,
Peace is our prayer and peace is our pie.

You can take a piece of cake, 
Without the knife. 
Use your fingers.

2   I took a Lemon Drizzle Cake to a lovely shared lunch with our Humanists group today. We served it with Cornish clotted cream and it was delicious!

3    I looked on the web to find a picture that suggested peace and decided that I have plenty of my own images which are as good if not better for the purpose so I give you here a beautiful field of Lavender, the herb that is said to promote a sense of peace and stability as well as freedom from mental and emotional stress. Sounds good to me. Here’s wishing you, Dear Reader, peace and happiness.
