Mother Nature’s Balm

Sometimes when the soul

is hit with too many

things at once

it dives into distress

frozen, unable to focus

the stirring inside

disrupts the flow of peace

can’t find the words to pray

tears will not release

it is then the only source of 

comfort can be found

in the healing balm of 

Mother Nature

Promise #233:
I bind up the brokenhearted and I will comfort all who mourn.

Isaiah 61:1-2 (WEB)
1 The Spirit of the Lord Yahweh is on me; because Yahweh has anointed me to preach good news to the humble. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to those who are bound; 2 to proclaim the year of Yahweh’s favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn;

Soul’s Palate

I have written a Japanese poetry form called Kouta Poem (version 2): quatrain with the following syllable count: 7775.  No other rules regarding rhymes, seasonal words, subject matter, etc.  For more information see:  Writer’s Digest.

In Response To:

V.J’s Weekly Challenge #108 – Taste – Taste is the focus this week. As you might have guessed, I am tugging at our sensory experience with these current challenges, although the word ‘taste’ has other connotations.  Look forward to your responses. Anyone can join in, and all forms of creativity are welcome.

Tender Loving Care

- dranilj1: Sunset

There are times when

this sojourn walked

can become wearisome

for the soul and 

it is then the Spirit

guides the soul to

plush green grass with

its sweet fresh scent

to lie down and rest upon

while listening to the

still quiet waters comforted

knowing that in the dawn

of a new morn the soul will

awaken refreshed and restored

from the tender loving care of

The Shepherd.
