angry unquelled

black clouds pervades one’s clear skies

soul begins spiral

actions turn into regrets

instead…rise through forgiveness

Light Of The Holy Hearth

Sunrise of the soul

will Light the darkest of

Winter days

melt a heart 

frozen

in bitter pain

angry and afraid

it will fill the 

emptiest loneliness

comfort a body’s

weariness

bring peace to

malevolence

heal a broken

spirit…

So then let us

shine

the Sunrise of our souls

one day at a time,

one moment at a time

to permanently extinguish

and bring serenity to

this world’s pandemic wildfire

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!

Birth Of A Sage Soul

Written In Response To:

Word Of The Day Challenge – Spontaneous

Free Verse Revolution – September Writing Prompt #1 – Stormclouds

BrewNSpew Cafe Weekly Challenge – Sage

Sue Vincent Thursday Photo Prompt:  Poised #writephoto – Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose.

Spontaneous are the blows of life

That will hit without any warning

Like stormclouds that suddenly appear

With lightening bolts of pain and anger

That strike the soul down into a dismay

Of weight that is too heavy to carry

And in the midst it can seem nearly

Impossible to stand and remain poised

While drowning in a flood of suffering lament

Due to the injustices one must bear

While the world goes on without a care…

Yet, we weather the storm with strength though

We cannot see until the sun shines again

The gift of a sage soul is borne with faith to know

But for the grace of God there go I 

An eternal soul that shall never die.

One Day

The Haunted Wordsmith Opposites Attract Challenge #10

For this challenge, I provide one word and a list of its antonyms. The challenge is to use the prompt word AND one (or more) of its antonyms in some form of writing (or creative work). 

Today’s Word:  earnestness

Antonyms: lightheartedness –  frivolity – levity

Sometimes the seriousness

of spiritual maturing

can bring on circumstances

that seem unfair or even cruel

striking the soul with such

anger, pain and grieving unending

and with earnestness one can seek

to try and understand all the “whys”

but often these things remain

a great mystery never to be unveiled

this is when the heart needs to

let go and dance in lightheartedness

through the fields of Spring

so the soul can once again sing

and know one day the Light

will shine upon all things

mysterious and healing will…

become whole and complete.

The Many Avenues Of The Soul – Freestyle Poem

The Many Avenues Of The Soul

Twisted, turning
hanging lost
so many the soul
must journey through
contorted in fear
writhed in pain
locked in anger
bent in despair
stripped to raw
trying to overcome
losing sight
in all the
twists and turns
of life’s seasons
holding on too tight
afraid to let go
and grow
in the unknown
where all is revealed
and the avenues
become straight paths
for others to follow
to freedom…

This the gift from God
to a soul so beautifully flawed
