Happy New Year
may this "January" be spectacular
for you and your family
may the doors of your heart be open
to opportunity and love
while the doors of your community
shut out conflict
"Jānua“ means doors in Latin
"Jānus“ is the Roman God of the doors
and the beginning of the year
he had a small temple in the Forum
two doors stood opposite each other
in time of war the doors stood open
in time of peace or "pax" in Latin they stood shut
Happy Holidays. This year my goal is to discover and share with the world, the word for peace in 5,000 or more languages through blogs, poetry, books, and public events. I have gathered the word for peace in over 2000 languages, trying to contextualize the word and understand nuanced differences. I am looking for funding to continue this project which I have funded out of my own pocket for the past two years.
This is a proposal that I become the poet-in-residence (remote as I live in Spokane, Washington) for your organization or one that you know. As the poet-in-residence, I would post daily blogs, pictures, and poetry to social media and run online seminars. Each post would include the word for peace, calm, harmony, or tranquility in one of the 7000 plus languages of the world with a link back to your organization.
Some of my work can be found at https://www.nervewhisperer.solutions/peace-poetry/category/peace-poetry
Let me know if you see any opportunities.

When Laws Collide, Mägaya Peace In Yolngu or Yolŋu Australia (Memory Exercises)
one of the first words we learn
a woman in Yirrkala tells
a legal term meaning the state of peace
achieved when laws are in place
If you've ever been down to a lake
or the sea in the morning
it's perfectly flat
that's " mägaya mäwaya "
Law creates that peace
you are protected
everything is "ŋoy-dharraḏa"
at peace calm
and burrmiḏi peaceful
or "mutitj" calm and peaceful
"beḻaŋ" calm and quiet
But when two systems of law
operate in one community
tranquility is not
the new conflicts
with law and order
that's been there
for 40,000 years

Visualize a body of water at peace. What does the surface look like? What color are the water and the sky? Are there other people or animals around? Is the water moving or completely still?

I am looking for guest blog opportunities and a position as poet-in-residence. My current project is writing dictionary poems using words in different languages for the English word "peace." You can read some of my poems on Poemhunter .
As poet-in-residence I would write poems on different words in different languages and broadcast them throughout the social media blogosphere. Each poem would link back to your site where the word or language appeared.
I would expect some sort of stipend and a six month to one year placement. Please contact me for details if your organization is interested in having a poet-in-residence to help get your message out. Nervewhisperer@gmial.com
