Glorious, sunny spring day

sitting beside a river

as it crawls past,

host to water birds.

Some fly, others sun themselves

along with flowers 

and the ubiquitous cherry blossom.

All is at peace.

This is even more remarkable

given where we are

and its history.

Hiroshima is not stuck.

It has moved forward

while honouring its past

primarily through 

the Peace Memorial Park.

The peace that the park

works to promote

is remarkably prevalent.

My senses are caught

In this uncomplicated


and powerful feeling.
