Vigil for Peace

 Alone it floats on the water, lit by a child, a call for peace amidst the wars.

Its a sign to beckon the weary to come.

Slowly more candles are lit,

More people come.

They come, not to curse the darkness.

They simply come to light a candle.

Soon the water reflects so much light.

Broken and surrendered they come.

Softly without words or song they minister.

In prayer and stillness they gather.

The ever-growing, universal vigil for peace has begun.
