The Indoor Garden

Although the soul is

in a holding pattern

awaiting the correct door

to be opened to a new season

and it feels as though

there will never be a change

or that there is no real purpose…

In this, the Sun can still shine

upon the soul’s soil and 

Living Water can quench the

thirst of the dormant seeds

awakening them to blossom

their beauty with a sweet fragrance

enticing others to come and enjoy

the pleasures of heaven’s garden

Dance Of Forgiveness

NaPoWriMo Challenge 2019 – Day 10

Your Daily Word Prompt – Flower – April 10, 2019

Word Of The Day Challenge – Vengeance

The Haunted Wordsmith Elemental Writing Challenge April 10, 2019

For this challenge, we will explore one of the four elements: air, earth, water, fire.  This week’s focus is Fire.  Simply use the word and/or image provided and be inspired by the natural element.

Today’s prompt and image: sizzling.

Sometimes another person’s tongue

can lead me into temptingly dark

thoughts of seeking vengeance embark

like cutting out the tongue leaving it

on a sizzling fire to burn split

and disintegrate into ashes lame

so no longer a soul it will defame…

but, then, by grace a better thought

comes to mind to relieve my distraught

and I choose the action of repentance

desiring to let love be the flower

that radiates its fragrance in my heart’s tower

allowing forgiveness to become the music I dance.

Guacamole Love

Paula’s Three Things Challenge

Today’s prompt: charisma, guacamole, rose

Avocado Decoration

Guacamole love smooth and creamy

with its bites of charisma’s spice

and the sumptuous fragrance

of a deep crimson Munstead Wood rose

with its thorns of passion that prick

the heart and cause it to bleed pain’s tears

for there is no true love

without the pain of caring

and if one has found this

cherish it forever

tis a rare and unique love

lasting and enduring through all time

instead of weak and fleeting

it is not selfish but instead

loves another more than itself

and never lets go.
