Hope In Hardship

In Response To:

FOWC With Fandango – Permit

RDP Saturday – Hope

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #61 – Every Wednesday I post a photo.  You respond with something CREATIVE.

Can one permit hope

for the worn and weathered

years of life taking its toll

when weariness is the lyrics

that the outer shell sings

off key due to pain and fatigue

the high pitch notes that scream

louder than the inner happiness…

 

Can one permit hope

with a mustard seed of faith

in the Grace where our hope is found

that reminds us that this is but

a temporary suffering

for in the dawn of a new morn

this passes and the outer shell

has a renewed strength

the gift of a heightened faith

in a Love that bears all things.

My Cherished Angel

In Response To:

RDP Saturday – Joy

Word Of The Day Challenge – Tinsel

Your Daily Word Prompt – Cherish – December 21, 2019

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

My Angel I cherish

is not the one covered

in shiny tinsel

instead the One who

comforts a weary heart

turning lament into joy

and causing the Sun

to rise and set on the

horizon of my soul

filled with guaranteed hope

the Sun shall always rise

again at the Morn’s dawn

with Dew of gratitude

as my daily meal to 

carry me through another day

A Dead Place

In Response To:

BrewNSpew Cafe Weekly Prompt #3 – Partake

FOWC With Fandango – Live

RDP Tuesday – Vacant

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #76 – Music

Word Of The Day Challenge – Ocean

Your Daily Word Prompt – Purpose – December 10, 2019

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.

Burdensome

In Response To:

FOWC With Fandango – Carriage

RDP Tuesday – Sound

Word Of The Day Challenge – Daft

Your Daily Word Prompt – Conspicuous – November 19, 2019

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!
