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.

The Watch That Keeps Time

In Response To:

Word Of The Day Challenge – Hope

As I prepare to enter

into the new year

I ponder the good times 

before this year that

seem of a long time ago

finding them hard to remember…

~

As 2020 is laid to rest

with its devastation of

too many lost lives and

the Wisdom gained 

from painful lessons

due to lack of uninformed

choices driven by fear…

~

I now meditate on 

the new times with

faith they will become a

reality of cherished memories…

~

Alas, patience must persevere

while suffering through the surge

before the new times arrive so

I will let hope be the watch

that keeps time 

making it worth the wait!

Awakening: The Journey To

In Response To:

Word Of The Day Challenge – Awakening

It begins with a

rugged, uphill battle

a road paved with

spiritual scars

The scheduled Roman road that runs across the Pennine’s Blackstone Edge Moor, Yorkshire © Mark Moxon

unevenly paved cobblestones

these paths, not pretty,

not smooth, instead…

Wisdom building, 

beauty making pain that

leads to a precious gift

a down for the count surrender

and there, we are met by God

where He gathers our

spiritual scars

weaving them into an

embroidered tapestry of 

fulfillment through selflessness

that will shroud the downtrodden with

a Love that heals and conquers all!
