Peace Is A Woman and a Mother

How do you know peace is a woman?
I know, for I met her yesterday
on my winding way
to the world's fare.
She had such a sorrowful face
just like a golden flower faded
before her prime.
I asked her why she was so sad?
She told me her baby was killed in Auschwitz,
her daughter in Hiroshima
and her sons in Vietnam,
Ireland, Israel, Lebanon,
Bosnia, Rwanda and Chechnya.
All the rest of her children, she said,
are on the nuclear black-list of the dead ,
all the rest, unless
the whole world understands --
that peace is a woman
A thousand candles then lit in her starry eyes,
and I saw --
Peace is indeed a pregnant woman,
Peace is a mother.

(Ada A. Aharoni, Ph.D. International President of PAVE PEACE Association and Coordinator of the International BAN - WAR CAMPAIGN.
