any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
The power of prayer is something which helps us to hold on to hope..to faith in God. Well penned :DLots of love,Sanaa
Oh I hope we do wake. These earth bound (self-proclaimed) gods have little power beyond putting on a fancy show and telling us how they will meet our promises. Much more power in prayer and communing with the God that can truly grant us what we need.
Ah, those "noir traps": "Weaving meshes of mirage wordsTo entangle each one of us" May our dreams grow bolder and creep into our waking hours so we are not so passive in the face of our earthly gods and the other Gods they build in their images! Wow! LOVE this poem!
I really liked this. Especially so as your quote from John Clare meant that I could look up into the book case and think "I really must read some of his poems again!" as some of your expressions sounded much like his.
I like how the title is straight forward but the poem is full of twists and turns. A very powerful plea of praying together and finding strength.
The power to break the bubble of power...i think freedom is in our mind set...once we change that than they become the plastic dolls! A powerful piece of prose Sumana
Each droplet made of dream - Love this line it captures so much, really open up doors that go beyond our limited boundaries.
Prayers heal both body and soul.
Beautifully penned. Prayers and unbound faith in the Divine makes things bearable and a lot easier.
I love your response of hope...love "each droplet made of dream". I love the flame in the heart that flares up.....may our hearts rise up all over the earth! The time is now.
I think we are coming out that noir-trap. At least I hope so. Good writing Samana. I like your descriptions of those in power.
human connection common hopefulness, makes prayer powerful. One has to wonder if the concept of powerful prayer has not been misplaced in the hands of the Shepherd instead? We may never know but I believe this challenges that concept.
A complex read -yes, let's struggle free from.the noir-traps of the life sucking earthly gods and turn our worship to that which nourishes us...
The power of praying is an amazing tool. It has helped me get through my toughest times ....beautiful writing, Sumana.
If only prayer was all that was needed for the world to get more loving and accepting.
That feeling of being at the receiving end in a conflict can never be understood when women and children are targeted. Your words reveal the desperation and terror faced by such groups! Well penned Sumana!Hank
I like this part best:We stir with lifeHolding a flame in the heartI believe in the power of prayers ~
prayer is powerful - much more than the ramblings of men and their lies. Very heart felt Sumana

Prayers is the most powerful. When doctors fail, it's the prayer that works. Beautifully penned. :)
We each need to embrace prayer as a way of life. Those whispers can work miracles.
Well-said, Sumana. I was talking to one of these arrogant earthly gods, once. After listening to inflated and self-aggrandising drivel for some time, after watching a shameless display of opulence and "power" that he wielded, I just quietly said to him: "Have you considered that tomorrow morning you may not be alive? Have you prepared yourself for that possibility?" He became silent after that and went away...
Thank you for stopping by and sharing your valuable thoughts.........
