Your Daily Word Prompt – Purpose – December 10, 2019

Sadje’s What Do You See #7 – Does this picture inspire you to write something?

As they journeyed through the vault

in search of a priceless treasure

they found it to be vacant and silent

of the lyrics and rhythm that gives one purpose

to live and partake in the abundance of life…

 

They chose not to dive deep into the ocean of grace

to capture the music that would carry them through

the waves of sorrows, pains, unbearable grief into

healing calm waters of Love’s strength, joys and 

incomparable heights beyond human realms…

 

But alas, they let fear imprison them into quietus

for a soul without music is a dead place.

Her Heart’s Desires

In Response To:

BrewNSpew Weekly Word Prompt – Ceremony

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #74 – Moderation

Your Daily Word Prompt – Kindred – November 28, 2019

Sadje’s What Do You See #5 – Does this picture inspire you to write something?

In her secret place where

she goes to create a life

and design a world

where people do not

stand on ceremony

instead…

all souls are kindred

living in moderation

not excessiveness to 

have more and be more

than others and 

poverty, homelessness, hunger are

obliterated…

each and every soul has

a tummy that is full 

and a place to call home

in her secret place

Interlude

In Response To:

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #73: Whole – Today’s challenge was inspired by Paul Vincent Cannon’s poem, To Be Made Whole.  All are invited to participate using whatever format of expression you wish.

The golden light of sunset creates the perfect retreat environment at the Grand Teton Mountains outside Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

a body worn out

a soul exhausted beyond

a sabbatical

desperately required

eyes closed the journey begins

rest to become whole again

Escaping

In Response To:

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #72: Wish – What’s in a wish? Do you dare to dream, to wish? This week, I challenge you to set your imagination free, unlock your heart, and wish.

Sadje’s What Do You See #3 – What words would you give to this picture?

She gazes at the art inside 

to take her where her dreams lie

instead of settling for just a wish

which she cannot seem to accomplish

it helps her to escape her life’s reality

of her marriage’s violent incompatibility

she tells herself that one day she will be free

but until that day the art remains her reprieve.

Written In Response To:

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #67:  Sky – I am currently fixated on the sky, as if the gathering clouds have a secret to reveal, or as if the slivers of sun are trying to reach me with a personal message of hope.  Is anyone else obsessed with the sky?  Let’s look to the sky this week to find what inspiration we can.
