    A Quote for Easter Day - with those in faithful anticipation
    "I know whenever peace comes, flowers will be planted instead of mines"
    - 12-year old Afghan student

    When there is peace
    They will plant flowers
    Instead of mines.
    And they will explode
    In silence, and blow us
    Quite off our feet.
    Their colours will blind
    Our eyes, their scent
    Will sing in our nostrils,
    Cling to our clothes,
    And linger in the air.
    Fragments will fall
    As petals, not metals,
    And none shall be afraid
    To walk, though beauty
    Too shall require
    Our gentleness
    When there is peace.

    - Alan Horner, in this month's Coracle
