Let Us Be Loved Ones

Peace is always beautiful.
~Walt Whitman

Reading the news was hard to bear. I decided to focus on images of peace for this Art Thursday. I've already given one quote, but here's another:

Come, let us all be friends for once,
Let us make life easy on us,
Let us be lovers and loved ones
~ Turkish poet Yunus Emre

An excellent subject for Art Thursday this week (and any week for that matter!).

BTW, the peace sign is a dove's foot within a circle. I've always liked that notion.
