faith and a full cup

I believe in quiet miracles of love
selflessness of the human heart
the breadth of compassion
the faith of Heaven above
tucked in floating clouds
and the people below
colors of rainbows
both on this side
and the other
I believe
one day
we will

fully realize
our humanity
and peace
will settle
across the land

To those who celebrate, Happy Easter
To those who don’t, have a lovely weekend

  1. Thank you so for your beautiful words and Easter greetings. I have been away from WP since last Sunday. By the time I will have played organ for Easter Sunday I will have played 5 services in 8 days…phew, one of them a very big, very sad funeral here in Lanark. Thank you for this and I notice that you put a streak of white, to show the reflection of light on your apple…even at the age of 9! Well done you! I hope this finds you and yours well and happy and my love to you all this Eastertime… ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. Wow that’s beautiful AnnMarie! The early talent and skill shown by a nine year old AnnMarie. I love it. That is some fantastic writing AnnMarie. AnnMarie=Number One! The prettiest and greatest artist ever! woo hoo!!!!

  3. Well, this is certainly evidence/proof of an exemplary artistic future. I marvel at the detail, the earmarks of the distinct AMRK late style — the soulful, expressive eyes and the little (don’t know what’cha call it) “trademark” on the turtle (like your earth thingies now). Gosh, what was I doing when I was 9? Let’s see, I think I was mastering cursive writing, squeezing a #2 pencil between my fat fingers (squeezing so hard I still have to this day a big bump on my middle finger). ๐Ÿ˜‰ Anyhoo, love the drawing — and my gosh, the beautiful words to go along with it! Happy Easter, AnnMarie! ๐Ÿท๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒท๐Ÿฃ
