Peace Like A Sermon Heard Preached

The wish for the appearance and existence,
For a peace that increases...
Has become as obsolete,
As one's use of a bow an arrow...
To decrease with an elimination,
The steps of an approaching enemy.

As long as minds are affixed to wars and crimes...
To develop sophisticated weapons,
With the inflicting to restrict movement...
Of human beings anytime,
Peace like a sermon heard preached...
Will be something no one equipped,
To use a weapon quick...
Will remember.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Peace, Maurice

Peace,
Maurice.
Lifted by the Sunrise,
Coming from the East.
Energizing throughout the day.
To rest.
As the comfort of deeds done...
Settles you in contentment.
As the Sunset in the West,
Comes.
To leave you pleased...
With all that you've done!


Dedicated To:
Maurice D. Robertson

'Photgrapher extraordinaire.
And jazz buff...
To soothe the airwaves,
From a DJ's chair.
(WWUH-FM, Hartford)
With history of jazz artists...
And more to share! '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Peacefully Kept Secret

I...
Have forgotten,
From where I've come?
This must be something,
You are accustomed to saying to anyone.
Perhaps those you would prefer to see,
An attention to them come.
And that would not be me.

You see...
Not only have I not forgotten,
But I am still living in it.
In the same familiar environment.
I am just not of it!
And I perceive that is what you meant.
Since I hope you are not accusing me of negligence.
That would be an assessment,
From someone with a mind fixed on images...
And not deeds.
And...
That would not be me.

I can not blame you at all!
Who would suspect...
I'd keep an interest in placing my footsteps,
Upon the same sidewalks.
And no one would expect my visions kept,
To reflect upon those unaccepting.

However,
I...
Have 'not' forgotten,
From where I've come at all.
In fact...
I am happy,
To keep my seeking to reach...
Peacefully kept secret.
And I believe that is what you see.

But...
I am not here to focus upon your impressions,
You seek with a validation,
To fuel into an argument.
Or a wasting of my rebuttal to expose a slighted ego.

I am happy,
To keep my seeking to reach...
Peacefully kept secret.
And I believe that is what you see.
To hopefully be kept the way it is,
Peaceful as it has been earned.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Peaches

Strolling in an orchard,
Seeking to get...
Some fresh peaches to pick.

Strolling in an orchard,
Seeking to get...
Just a few peaches to pick.
But none,
Are yet ripened...
To savor the deliciousness.
No not one,
Is yet ripened...
To satisfy my taste for it.
Or,
The hope I had to lick my fingertips.

Strolling in an orchard,
Seeking to get...
Some fresh peaches to pick.
But none,
Are yet ripened...
To savor the deliciousness.
No not one,
Is yet ripened...
To satisfy my taste for it.
Or,
The hope I had to lick my fingertips.

No not one,
Is yet ripened...
To satisfy my taste for it.
Or,
The hope I had to lick my fingertips.

Peaches. Peaches...
It's just too early to be seeking a peach.
Peaches. Peaches...
It's just too early for a peach to reach.
Peaches. Peaches...
It's just too early to be seeking a peach.
Peaches. Peaches...
It's just too early for a peach to reach.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
