Sadje’s What Do You See #8 – Does this picture inspire you to write something?

When the soul has been

hewn to love beyond itself

precious is the grace that

has borne another’s burden

~ * ~

Galatians 6:2-3 (AMP)

2 Carry one another’s burdens and in this way you will fulfill the requirements of the law of Christ [that is, the law of Christian love]. 3 For if anyone thinks he is something [special] when [in fact] he is nothing [special except in his own eyes], he deceives himself.

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

Foreseen Not Fate

In Response To:

Word Of The Day Challenge – Sanguine

Your Daily Word Prompt – Ecstatic – November 20, 2019

Sadje’s What Do You See #4 – Does this picture inspire you to write something?

An ecstatic vision

of what I could become

if I allow my prideful ways

to always be the outcome

a frightening thought to be seen

yet at the same time

a sanguine blessing foreseen

warning me of my soul’s decay

should I not choose to comply 

and follow in a humble way

lest this be the way I die

How daft my mind becomes

when the side effects of this

conspicuous autoimmune disease

overcomes this body in

unbearable ways and the

sounds of anger, agitation, annoyance

at every little thing is

delivered in a carriage with 

a determined purpose to 

laden my heart and my day…

grateful…for my julep of grace

that carries me through each time!
