The topic or prompt for this week’s Līgo Haībun Challenge is:PEACE “Those who are at war with others are not at peace with themselves.” ~ William Hazlittm ~
The haībun format for the Līgo Haībun Challenge is a written paragraph ( more than one paragraph is fine, or just a few sentences in prose form), closing this piece with the haiku/collection of haiku related to the text. The haiku should be as authentic as possible. Ideally the entire haibun will total fewer than 220 words. (Quote found by Nightlake.)

Peaceful protests and nonviolent demonstrations by many individuals and organizations are scheduled for …a restless stirring from within and from without peace patiently waits is it causation humanities bane power equals war
