turning graciously

Even thinking about it now still brings tears to my eyes.

Here it was
this beautiful planet
turning graciously about itself,
under the warm rays of the Sun…
so peaceful…
so full of life…
no signs of war,
no signs of borders,
no signs of trouble,
just pure beauty…

How I wished everyone could
experience this feeling in their heart,
especially those who are at the heads
of the governments in the world.
