On Writing Peace Poetry

When poetry for peace we write
We mean a much  deeper might

Why? Peacewords would never fight
Instead, they suggest a sustainably serene sight

When poems for peace we compose
A world of relational dignity we propose

Peace poetry calls for a life-supporting- and- saving  vocabulary
In such spirit, many kinds of Nonkilling words will be necessary

Through peace through poetry, in many languages, may more people  be educated
As peacepoets, let´s pledge for our poetico-planetary co-responsibility to be elevated
