Believe


what would happen 
if love prevailed over hate?
let's visualize

angels sing morning melodies
roses bloom in december
oh that mesmerizing scent

children play in meadows
kindness grows on trees
oh those luscious evergreens

stars sparkle every night
humanity in harmony
united not divided

changing the world
one rose petal at a time
when love prevails

Our creative friends at Poetry Jam invited us this week to share a poem on "make believe," a fantasy. Well, let's hope my fantasy becomes reality! I really enjoyed writing this poem tonight. I took this photograph in my hometown of Pleasantville, NY, tonight, too, as we had a little tree lighting ceremony in town. We had a full moon, too! To add to the fantastical effect, I added snow to my photo! What fun. Hope you enjoy this as much as I did. Please visit http://poetryjaam.blogspot.com/ for more fantastical poetry. I'm sharing my photo with Pixel Dust Photo Art, one of my favorite digital photography art sites. Please visit http://www.pixeldustphotoart.com/ for more artistic photos. Enjoy!

  13. Isn't that what we peace and love wishers all dream... the world would just all 'wake up' one day and 'get it'.
    Lovely visions, it could be so real if (as the Beatles sang) we'd give peace a chance.

  18. A perfect pairing - both oozing love and light. Like Butler and Bagman I think it could pass for an xmas tree floating in space, made from stars. Thank you for sharing your many talents with Photo Art Friday, Loredana.
