How would you spell "peace" if you had only ever heard the word and never read it?

Make up a language
describe the community that speaks that language
what are the words for
Sometimes it takes more than one word to get the meaning across. It takes a community of peace to write peace in some languages. It is not a bad thing it just takes more people more connections more sounds to call peace into being.
Say the word peace in whatever language you would like as loudly as you can.
Tell someone about your commitment to peace and to health for yourself and others.
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

Mir Peace, A Word Study In Humanity's Connections
Poem by Kimberly Burnham on Poemhunter
Disguised in Cyrilic
unfamiliar Russian letters
мир mir mip means peace
as Russia and the Ukraine
struggle against each
the same word waiting between
Ancient records evidence
mir peace in Serbia dances
across the page dressed in a Cyrillic alphabet
Roman letters marching to the same beat as English
Arabic script flowing peace from right to left
Mir peace in the Czech Republic
words of peace in Bulgaria
Montenegro and Macedonia
Bulgarian mir spoken in hope-filled tones
in Bulgaria TurkeyRomania
Russian mir given voice in so many lands
Moldova Belarus Estonia
Georgia and Central Asia
mir to all in these lands
In Croatia mir written in Roman letters
familiar to a Westerner
words still in Croatian and Czech
again mir in Slovene
peace moves on an out breath
in Slovenia Austria and Italy
mir peace borrowed by the Portuguese
Mir a common Muslim family name
in Pakistan Bangladesh and India
a short form of Arabic's Amir prince
Hebrews' Amir exalted summit of a tree
while old Polish personal names miron
hold fast to the elements of peace quiet esteem
Miron or myron from myrrh
a fragrant resin incense perfume
wafts over the land
lubomir loves peace in Polish
miroslav a peace celebration
casimir the Polish bringer of peace
miro medieval personal names
of Germanic origin border on
the French variant of mire
all the while
zamir for peace in slavonic
resembles a common male Muslim name
heart or conscience
Russion мир also means world
the perspective of a village
nestled in a beautiful countryside
local people live in communal proximity
sharing limited resources
heat in harsh winters
exclusion from the mir
almost certain death
Mir the name of a space station
peacefully floating in the air we all breath
over a land we share
