A Shining Opportunity

Today I had the welcome opportunity to go to a café again and write poems. That brings my total for today to 9 poems so far, although their artistic merit is dubious. DVerse introduced me / everyone to a new poetry form: the Zéjel. It sounded like fun, and it was. This is just a beginning, though, because I think it needs at least 1 or 2 more quatrains. As an added challenge, I used Linda’s paint chips and her simile prompt to help me come up with a topic for my zéjel. The paint chips did not easily suggest a topic, but I figured, “When in doubt, write about Jesus.” LOL I’m glad to have gotten this opportunity to try a new form (and to smash together 4 prompts in one post).


Heaven’s light sparkles more than stars:
Though Jesus has kept His wounds’ scars,
Pure happiness no sorrow mars.

Humans’ sin like a deep dark wood —
Find a way through? No mere man could,
But God in His love surely would
And did, grace means no one’s too far.
