Hearts Alive!

Heart shaped leaves on plant

Caring about others

Is vibrant

Catalyst for life

Listen to the Lyrics

Some words on paper

Come alive and touch people

The alphabet will speak

A heartfelt message of truth

To those willing to hear

Reflections on Prayer

Shadorma poem about prayer--prayer plant photo
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona J. Atkinson ©2014

While caring for my Prayer Plant I noticed some of its leaves were a healthy looking, large and bold green, but others were weak looking, curled up or shriveled up brown.  This got me to thinking upon my prayers which are sometimes large and bold, other times weak or filled with doubt, and even at times non-existent.  Thus, this poem was inspired and created as I was reflecting.
