Don’t Cross Peace 

I think

It’s easy 

To imagine peace as

A bare-cheeked cherub 

Strumming ice-cream truck tunes

Outside St. Peter’s door.
But I wonder

If it’s more like

Daniel’s angel,

Warring against the Prince 

Of Persia 21 days.
Or maybe,

It’s an 

Up-from-the-grave

Third day 

Resurrection 

Victory.
Over sin.

Over death.

Just 

Like

That.

Death’s dead. Gone.

Ka-

Put.
I think that’s the kind

Of peace

That guards our hearts…

In Christ Jesus.
*Phil. 4:7
