There were a few different prompts that I wanted to partake in this week, but I couldn’t write anything good in response to them yet. This poem, which I wrote a few days ago, is linked with DVerse OLN.
When troubles come, I must
Avail myself of help,
Ready to be my shield:
Refuge of gratitude, happiness
In the midst of an enemy army
On the march — I find purchase on this
Rocky path and soldier on.
Mounds of memories
Unearth buried feelings —
Sing of sadness and somehow rise
In triumph : These bars and beats
Can’t hurt but carry me.
Shared with DVerse Open Link night the last of this year.
Being — a gift
Eternity ; God
Said we would live, not
Simply now — forever.
Immortal is the soul,
Now is the time
Given to befriend Him.
This was written a few days ago, and I am sharing it with the Poetry Pantry.
This is for Linda G. Hill’s stream-of-consciousness Saturday, which is based on the words way, weigh, and/or whey. Minimal planning and no editing went into this, so without further ado….
White is the blizzard in front of my face
And hidden is the road forward —
Yesterday is gone and I can’t find tomorrow.
Blown by winds but not torn
Apart, due to a
Strong base of love, which is
An acrostic poem inspired by today’s One-Word challenge, which is “base” and just one word.
JosJoJan day 21: Echo
Extension of the past into the future,
Calling in a repetitious pattern —
How can we avoid the events
Of yesteryear happening again, and turn?
At DVerse we are “firing up” our creativity.
Fearful yet friendly,
Licking logs of fallen trees
And providing heat, burning —
Make room around the firepit,
Everyone is welcome.
