Crucifix and the Duck (c) 2010 Dayvid Graybill
From "The Crucifix and the Duck" photo series

Finding Peace


He carried the wooden cross

As far up the hill as he could

Looking into the distance

Not knowing where he stood.


She came up slowly beside him

Placed her hand on his heart

Together, one with the earth

No one could tear them apart.


She stayed strong by his side

The whole world gathered ‘round

With hate and fear in their eyes

And scorning his thorny crown.


“Mary,” he barely whispered

“Can you hold me for just a while?”

She kissed him and cried

And it was there that he died.


Her broken heart was heavy

As she picked up the cross

And carried on up the hill

Feeling so deeply her loss.


Looking over the top of the cliff

She silently prayed for release

Heaving the cross up over the side

The world was swept up in peace.

It takes alot of energy to carry hate
and any any negative preconceiving notions
which is ultimately draining to the person(s)
or its collective group(s)
but unfortunately the world will never have
a wholeness to peace, but written here
it can be embraced...

...gathering lost artifacts
thrown from cliffs edge...Vickie

What true Christian poetry should look like...not spoon fed and shoved down our throats. It takes a Mennonite Pastor from my Colorado state (smiling big in my home town tonight not very far from you) with a big heart and old ways to establish in one month what others have been trying to force upon us for years. Kudos!

Love n' Stuff,

Beautifully done, Sir.

It is high time for all of the world to be one; the prophets (Jesus included) have preached of this "brotherhood of man" in love and peace for this planet for eons. It is sad that humanity has evolved so little in that direction.

I just left the above comments on someone else's poem a moment ago. Somehow, it seems applicable to the theme that you share witin your verses here. Thank you, Dayvid. Love and peace,

A fine piece of writing, but I'm curious. Why would you place this poem as 'fantasy' I admit, I'm a little slow on the uptake...thanks.
