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

Word For The Day…


Gratitude as a discipline involves a conscious choice. I can choose to be grateful even when my emotions and feelings are still steeped in hurt and resentment. It is amazing how many occasions present themselves in which I can choose gratitude instead of a complaint.

If I had the power of creation

Strength borrowed from life’s experiences

I would change the only one I can

By the grace of God’s mighty hand


I would have sought more wisdom to be better

Instead of remain imprisoned by pain and anger’s fetter

I would have loved harder by Divine’s command

Instead of shielding my heart with bitter reprimand


This was my past and by paid ransom is finished

And by its power do good so evil is continually diminished

For I cannot change others only use my free will by choice

To follow the commands of whispers from Love’s inner voice


One day at a time seeking to be more like the Son

To touch another’s soul so their torment will be done

And pray for the eternal reaction of a domino effect

That one soul at a time has love and peace be their affect.
