Having peaceful thoughts
about our circumstances and surroundings
respecting the views of others while still
maintaining our own beliefs
open mindedness
not judging others blindly
yet open to all possibilities

A nice take on Harmony Cindy. Sometimes it is hard to find that harmony in such diverse cultures and isms that seem to refuse to get along with one another. I think the only was to be truly at peace with others is to be at peace with your self by living by the ideals that are most self evident to your conscience.
A wise man once said
O God, give us the serenity to accept what cannot be changed.
The courage to change what can be changed
And the wisdom to know the one from the other

I came across this old (non rhyming) poem that I wrote sometime ago and have revised it in keeping with the topic of Harmony. It's mainly just a collection of images and thoughts with a hippy commune motif.

-Peach Melba Harmony-
by Leslie Blackwell

Peach Melba dreams of Utopia
Strung with daisy-chains
Bountiful serenity
Where Flower-Children frolic

A bearded guru strums a Sitar
Puffing the magic dragon
Chanting wind chime mantras of inner peace
Incense joyrides the gentle breeze

Peach Melba dreams of Utopia
Strung with daisy-chains
Harmony of Nature's choir
Where Flower-Children frolic

Lull of a graceful river
From deepest oceans blue
Bathing supple birthday suits
Eroding jagged rock to stepping stones

Peach Melba dreams of Utopia
Strung with daisy-chains
River bathing shiatsu
Where Flower-Children frolic
