"Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. Psalms 122: 7"

She flew to the window
This wild bird of the air....
And bowed her head low
By the plant of prayer...

Tho' she's not enclosed by walls
For earth and sky is her palace
Her ardent prayer to kingdom's hall
Is for peace without malice..
© Poetry by me AJP

The prayer plant used to belong to my late mother and I inherited it after her death. I loved that the Downy woodpecker flew next to it this morning on the outside window and she stayed long enough for me to shoot this picture.

Best View in Light-box! Thank you!!!
