Fruits From My Heart
I thought everything was in perspective:
romance, strong perfume, music, money,
status, excursions, hazy windows, burning lips,
and ice cream cones.
But what has happened now?
Murky clouds, cold winds, and sandstorms,
Fierce rains and snowy mountains
Can’t touch anything,
can’t hear the trumpet cry or the drum beats—
clear window panes, still can’t see.
Fruits from My Heart is a collection of spiritual, romantic, and inspirational poems from the creative mind of Carolyn Walker Odell. Journey with her as she shares her perspective and enlightened view of faith and what it means to love.
