scattering acorns for peace

When the oak is felled the whole forest echoes with its fall, 

but a hundred acorns are sown in silence 

by an unnoticed breeze.

-Thomas Carlyle

John Lennon and Yoko Ono began a project back in 1969 that they called Acorn Peace

they sent out 2 acorns in a transparent box to various world leaders

in hopes that they would be planted as seeds of peace.

In 2009, 40 years later, Yoko Ono once again sent out 2 acorns to world leaders.

We are the acorns

We are the sowers of peace seeds

We are mighty oaks in forest woods

We are the unnoticed breeze

scatter acorns when you walk
scatter acorns when you talk
scatter acorns when you cook
scatter acorns with a look

scatter acorns when you sing
let an acorn be your bling
scatter acorns when you teach
scatter acorns at the beach

scatter acorns in the park
scatter acorns as a lark
scatter acorns on your bike
as you ride with your friend Mike
scatter acorns in your lawn
with your baby brother Sean
scatter acorns with the tide
scatter acorns far and wide

 scatter acorns leave a trail
scatter acorns in the mail
scatter acorns with a smile
scatter acorns all the while
let's all be like tall oak trees
scattering acorns with the breeze

Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
