Pieces of my peace

I found pieces of my
Peace in a space
Between the two
Mountains where
Birds in their
Splendour sing
Healing melodies
To rocks that
Shall not be
Moved I sat
Gathering pieces
Of my peace
While listening
To the voices of
The wind maybe my
Ancestors speaking in
A language of the spirits
Only my soul could understand
Right there as pieces of
My peace become one
With creation
Illusions manufactured by
The hands of men who claim
To know God evaporated
Through eternity as I
Became one with my peace
And reclaimed
My headspace in the space
Between the two mountains
