Reena’s Exploration Challenge #104 – PROMPT – Long And Short Of It.  Posted is a rather long paragraph by Jiddu Krishnamurthy.  You need not get lost in the length. Just choose any three words and create your piece with the three chosen words as a base.  My Three Words:  Feeling Of Sacredness.

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

I remember the days of 

a long time ago before

the world became so busy

living in the chaos of noise

back when people were content

reaching for the simplicity of

the matinal Light filling

their souls with a feeling of sacredness

and a desire to bring that sacredness

to others that they may know

an awakening of abundant 

beauty of stillness in tranquility

generosity of heart towards 

others who ached in brokenness…

Yes, I miss those days and 

I pray that those of us whose

souls are filled in spiritual sacredness

will keep reaching to fill the 

lost and empty souls wrenching

in desperation to be love and accepted

not by the world, but in the Beloved.

Spirit’s Birth

Written In Response To:

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #103 – PROMPT:  I have a video for you this week – aeon.co.  If you do not have the patience to watch 6 minutes of it, use the following words as a prompt:  Delightfully Disorienting Dance.

When we begin to disconnect

from rigid beliefs imposed

we are disorienting from

withering ways…

feeling lost for a moment

but then this is where

the seed of spirit begins

to delightfully blossom into

an aromatic dance of soul

freedom of spirit’s flight borne

The Little Sparrow’s Melody

Written In Response To:

V.J. Weekly Challenge #62: Child/Childhood –  Ponder what it means to be a child.

A Chipping Sparrow in Sunset Light

A child of darkness

a child of light

a child of weakness

a child of might

 

A child of weeping

a child of laughter

a child of dreaming

a child of slaughter

 

A child of love and hate

both became this child’s fate

the warring within raged

a tender sparrow’s imprisoned cage

 

One day an Angel came

opened the cage to set her free

this sparrow’s life was never the same

she was free to fly, free to breathe

 

War turned to peace clarity beckoned

finally she was able to sing her song

through Wisdom she now reckoned

it was to Love she knew she belong

 

Blessed is this precious sparrow

who has known darkness’s tragedy

for the dawn of every new tomorrow

hope has become her soul’s melody.

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.

Hidden Treasures

Written In Response To:

Ragtag Daily Prompt – Pebble 

Comedy Plus Thankful Thursday – It’s Thankful Thursday hosted by Brian of Brian’s Home. He wants us to post what we’re thankful for.

secret world

I am thankful for the 

little pebble sized blessings

not seen by the natural eye

they must be sought to be found

which is why they are so profound

so many times these pebbles are missed

through distractions we often dismiss

these precious jewels that bring great joy

when we are unwilling to apply and employ

the application of a virtuous attitude

to unearth the hidden treasures of gratitude.

The Visit

Written In Response To:

Word Of The Day Challenge – Zone

Reena’s Exploration Challenge # 101 – Moving on to this week, here’s an image prompt….

As a grown man looks into the conical zone

of his mind’s memories captured with silhouetted shadows

filled with the pain of his early childhood traumas

he remembers a frozen moment in time as a young boy

seeking purpose and waiting for an answer, he 

stood still holding the lamp switch and it was then

that he heard from two angels appearing as airplanes

and they began to speak this message to him 

that would forever change his life:

 

“In order for you to fly My son, you must turn on the light

to chase away the dark shadows of your past, and move forward 

into the plan and promises I have waiting for you.” 

 

The boy then, although fearful turned on the light as he

was instructed and the shadows were chased away and he

filled with the faith to move forward into the plan and promises 

to live beyond what his imagination could ever imagine!

Sometimes

Written In Response To:

Your Daily Word Prompt – Mystify – July 23, 2019

Go Dog Go Cafe Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge – Today’s Prompt:  Construct a poem using one word to start and the same word to end it.

Sometimes…

the miseries of the world

and it’s brutal injustices

can overwhelm a tender heart

seeking to bring love and peace

to a very broken humanity

searching to find the light of hope

amidst the calamity of darkness

can mystify the lamented soul

Sometimes…

Unencumbered

Written In Response To:

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #35 – Every Wednesday I post a photo & You respond with something CREATIVE.

Perpetual journey…

open paths with green pastures

broken roads with dark trails

frozen steps with no direction

rest areas with cradled grace…

and through it all

with a child-like heart

unencumbered

we will always hear the

music of our soul and dance

Ripples Of The Ever-Loving Soul

FELIZ NOCHE PARA TODOS HASTA MAÑANA DULCE SUEÑOS BENDICIONES TU QUERIDO AMIGO +Eduardo Espinoza​ UN FUERTE ABRAZO A LA DISTANCIA QUE BELLEZA LA ##NATURA... - Eduardo Espinoza - Google+

Ripples in time reflect

the experiences of growth

as anxiousness levels into peace

hurriedness slows to become patient

fears lessen and bold courage takes hold

wavering solidifies as decisive trust

faltering strengthens into a mountain of faith

our pain and suffering becomes a Higher Wisdom

just as the ripples of water remind us

it is ever-changing, ever-growing, ever-moving

and ever-breathing new life into 

the ever-loving soul.

Road Worthy

Written In Response To:

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #94 – Seasons change, so do people and relationships. What remains constant is the process of churning out thoughts – some mundane, some innovative and some creative – but it is energy nevertheless, energy which powers the world. So, here we are in another tiny capsule of time, reproducing snapshots of our thought process in this space.  PROMPT:  TRUTH & MEANING.

Maria Antonia Weekly 2019 Photography Challenge – Come join me, each Saturday, in posting a photo.  There  is a list of the prompts to help inspire us. The order of the photos won’t matter. In other words, you don’t have to start at the top and move toward the end. For this challenge, you may pick any prompt on the list and start with that.  PROMPT:  ROAD WORTHY.

The path looks a little rugged, but it's still there. Find your way....

a soul is not born

road worthy

for it is the 

rugged way

that grows a soul

into worthiness

if…the soul chooses to

endure faithfully

and then…the soul is

worthy

to travel the road

rarely chosen
