Heart’s Desire Fulfilled

In Response To:

Ragtag Daily Prompt – Blanket

Word Of The Day Challenge – Lukewarm

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Dreamcatcher – March 4, 2021

Hope deferred 

is like a 

lukewarm blanket

in the heart

dreams and desires fade

I call to the Dreamcatcher…

Dreamcatcher catch for me

tears of sadness I cry and

return to me laughter

Dreamcatcher catch for me

the misery and despair and

return to me joy

Dreamcatcher catch for me 

this life mundane and 

return to me extraordinary

Dreamcatcher catch for me

loneliness in this heart and

return to me a soulmate

Dreamcatcher catch for me

fire that burns within the Sun and

return to me a passionate hope

setting free the lukewarm blanket

never to be returned.

Proverbs 13:12 (AMP)

Hope deferred makes the heart sick,

But when desire is fulfilled, it is a tree of life.

A meager slumber

toils the mind from

too many thoughts

clamped tightly within

speech becomes muted

unable to release thoughts

left in the unknown

with unanswered questions

awaiting Wisdom’s whisper

of guidance…

a pivotal moment

do I ride the waves on

Patience’s surfboard

– OR –

let these thoughts become

tsunamis that drown me…

in this moment I choose 

Patience inspired by 

lessons learned from

past tsunamis – 

all questions will be answered and

all things will work out for the good

– IN –

God’s perfect timing!

The Unnoticed Souls

In Response To:

Ragtag Daily Prompt – Movement

Word Of The Day Challenge – Claim

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Champion – February 18, 2021 – Go where the prompt leads you and publish a post on your own blog that responds to the prompt. It can be any variation of the prompt and/or image. Please keep it family friendly. Prompts close 7 days from the close of my post.

It all begins with one soul

beatdown, broken, hopeless

hated, unwanted, abandoned

unloved, silently dying within

down in the valley’s darkness

drowning in its own tears

unspoken words of the heart

that only Love can hear and

give answer to their call…

Movement of the soul begins

a rising to the mountain top

these souls are the unnoticed

for they do not lay claim for themselves

they are the ones whose wings cannot be seen

lighthouses whose beam of Light shines 

bright through the darkest storm

whose peace is undisturbable, their

forgiveness, compassion, and love are

poured out unconditionally upon others

even for the ones that destroyed them…

They walk silently upon this earth

in humble gratitude for the Love that

breathed Life into their death…they are God’s

Champions Of Grace.

Wisdom Gained

In Response To:

Ragtag Daily Prompt – RDP Thursday – Tiptoe

Word Of The Day Challenge – Gloomy

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge – Repercussions 

Sadje’s What Do You See #67 – Photo prompt

When my heart becomes

gloomy

my first instinct is to 

tiptoe

around the issue and 

pretend

that all is a well and good

facade

but I have painfully learned the

repercussions

of avoidance the darkness shall

reign

leaving my heart 

imprisoned

unable to walk into the

Light

if I do not embrace it in

Love

that turns the darkness into

Sunshine

and repetitive foolish choices into 

Wisdom

The Ache Of Sad

In Response To:

Word Of The Day Challenge – Sad

Lynn’s Tuesday Picture Prompt Week 33 – Your challenge or writing prompt is this:   what emotions or feelings get evoked or aroused in you when you look at this photograph taken by Lynn.  

The creative goal for all of us is “what does the picture evoke in youwhat emotion; feeling; memory or whatever it may be – what does it arouse in you and to share it that with others.

An open gate invokes

invitation

Mother Nature beckons

Come, enter my sanctuary

inhale the fragrant aroma and

the kiss of Sun’s warmth 

where the soul is free to be

still in the quiet peace

away from the disconnect

of the cold concrete jungle

filled with the world’s chaos…

Alas, due to many limitations

I cannot accept her invitation

only gaze and meditate on

a picture of her and

imagine myself there 

yet I am still left with

the ache of sad

Tilling Of The Heart

In Response To:

Word Of The Day Challenge – Tenderness

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #114 – Every Wednesday I post a photo.  You respond with something CREATIVE.

Like the ground frozen over

in the midst of the bitter cold

so can the heart become also

filled with unnourished dead weeds

leaving the heart in a comatose state

yet when a seed of tenderness is

sown into an unhealed heart it

shall melt the bitter cold

creating abundantly fertile soil

that sprouts new hope filled life

flowing with eternal springs of 

Living Waters!

My Heart’s Desire

In Response To:

Word Of The Day Challenge – Brilliant

Your Daily Word Prompt – Enliven – January 3, 2021

May the eyes of our souls

be enlivened to see

the brilliance of hope

beyond the seemingly hopeless

beyond the barren land devoid

of an infectious Love

that shall bring a cure

to what plagues humanity

becoming a far and distant memory

moving forward in the Wisdom

of a deadly lesson learned

honoring the lives lost

Amen.
