Pleas for Peace

Thank you S. Writings for such an amazingly colourful prompt

Flash fiction photo prompt challenge


You see it don’t you

How we use symbols

How we make messages

To reach the heart and mind?

This message is the word of peace

A single word in the ear of another

To reach the ears of the many

But is the cow embodying it safe?

Or is it a problem, the ‘sacred cow’

One that we act out, that is now habit

A habit of origins now unknown

But faithfully we continue to re – enact

Peace is so valuable and so lost to many

It is even now camouflaged by a colourful display

Maybe the secretive inclusion will work magic

People will listen with their ears to its plea
