You

Painted rock that says “Believe in Yourself”

There’s only one you

You are unique, you matter

Believe in yourself

Never Give up

Large rock, dandelions

Are you

Facing a rock

Being seen as unwanted

Seeing your chance for wishes

Cut down

Before

They had the opportunity to

Become airbourne

Never give up

Stand firm

Dig in

Let your faith grow

Deep, be tenacious, for

Someday, someone will stop

Admire

And see

Your beauty and your true worth

For we all have a purpose

That’s waiting to be

Fulfilled

Double Butterfly Cinquain

Today as I was out walking I stopped near this big rock where I saw two dandelions blooming and one that had gone to seed lying down on the ground as if crushed, probably by the landscapers mower hitting it.

It intrigued me enough to snap a picture and also was inspiration for this poem.

You Matter

Hand painted rock says “You Matter”
Hand painted rock by Leona J. Atkinson

Perhaps to the world

You have been deemed

As “Non-Essential”

But in God’s eyes we

Are all “Essential”

We ALL Matter to Him

Syllabic Verse

Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will.

But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.

Matthew 10: 29-31 NKJV

YOU MATTER

Original drawing by Leona J. Atkinson 2019

Yes, you are unique! There’s

Only one you in this whole

Universe! Imagine that!

Many might make

Attempts to be like you, but

Try though they might,

They’ll never be you,

Ever! Because you are special!

Remember that!

Acrostic

“You are God’s masterpiece”

Ephesians 2:10

My grand-daughter and I had a “painting day” together today. We had fun painting inspirational rocks to put in my rock garden.

She was very creative and imaginative and turned two of the rocks into a horse face! 😊

Buttercup Blessings

Buttercup in bloom

You matter

So bloom

Wherever

Whenever

You can

Alone?

So what!

Someone

Will notice

Your smile

Perhaps

You will

Cheer them

Along

Their way

Syllabic Verse

Yesterday on my walk I was tired from the uphill climb to get to the grocery store and then on my way back I was burdened down with the two heavy bags I was carrying.

I stopped to rest on a bench and happened to notice a solitary Buttercup blooming. The little waxy bright yellow flower brought a smile to my face as it looked so cheerful. Even though it was not very big, nor in a prominent place, it still bloomed and in doing so made a difference in my life that day.

Remember—You Matter—wherever you are, bloom where you are planted, and you will make someone’s day better.
