Peace, Perfect Peace?

A Rick Henry Christopher Peace on Earth Challenge

By Angie the Archivist 📚🪶Published 4 months ago 1 min read
Hudson and his doting admirer!

What a glorious morning!

Magnificent magpie’s golden notes… onto dawn’s pristine canvas spill,

Whilst chattering, purple, Pale-headed Rosellas frolic.

A zephyr flaps my exhilarated Labrador, Hudson’s floppy ears

As he lollops down the hill…

Darting excitedly to greet his girlfriend… a younger version of him.

Ah… peace, perfect peace!


Sunbeams softly kiss my cheek…

Alack and alas… her heart throb is not everyone’s hero!

Dabbling Mallard Ducks serenely sail on by… down the creek.

An unsociable Golden Lab growls grumpily and rates him a Zero!

Boxer dog’s laser beam gaze locks on…

Full Alert, raring to pounce and give chase…

Oblivious, Huddy ambles along, curiously inspecting a spooked ginger Tom

Their peace, perfect peace has gone!

Statue Still… glaring at that hideous creature!

    I felt so calm at the end of the first stanza, and then the tension mounts again!

  • Oooo, do you know what is Hudson's girlfriend's name? Also, I've only ever heard of alas, not alack. Thank you for teaching me somethings new!
