Hearts Joined Together

I pray the world could know peace

Learn how to love, not wage war

When hearts come joined together

Can work side by side.

I have used the above poem to illustrate a verse of Japanese poetry known as Dodoitsu where there are four lines to the verse and the first three lines each have seven syllables, and the last line, the fourth has five. This kind of poetry usually has a love or work related theme to it. I chose to use it here as an expression of hope and unity for our world, where faith and love begins with each heart.
