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.

Sue Vincent Thursday Photo Prompt:  Clarity #writephoto – Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, by noon (GMT)  Wednesday 24th July and link back to this post with a pingback to be included in the round-up.  There is no word limit and no style requirements, except to keep it fairly family friendly.

Clarity…sometimes the soul aches

to receive it thus banishing the confusion

yet, at times nothing is heard 

in that moment one awakens

to realize a deeper maturity of Spirit

the Presence of Grace is often silent…

clarifying all confusion.

Outbuildings at Hethel

As a little girl growing up

living in a house of darkness

I developed this mechanical gadget

that helped me survive the atrocities

the only way a child could all on her own

 

As I grew into a young adult

this darkness would continue to rule

over my life attracting the darkness repeatedly

until this mechanical gadget could no

longer help me survive and finally broke…

 

Yet, this was the most beautiful day of my life

for I called out to no one but the One who would

pick up all the broken pieces of my mechanical gadget

and through His tender velvet touches of Grace

turned my mechanical gadget into a heart of love.

In The Down

Written In Response To:

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #46:  RESPONSE – For this week’s challenge, I thought it might be interesting to create a post in response to someone else’s work.

In The Down

Many year ago

I used to keep

people down

with me so I

would not be lonely

it made me feel

falsely superior to them

I was jealous because

I could see their

possibility to soar

and I didn’t want

to be left behind

though I was never able

to hold them down

for very long…

*

But one day, Grace

came to meet me

in the down, empty

death in my soul

that I may soar

to lift others up

instead of hold them

and myself down.

Maybe a strange word will catch your eye, or perhaps the mishmash of information will provide you with the germ of a poem.

Watertema soos myne mosaiek

When one has been battling illness,

trials and tribulations for some time

and remains faithful and diligent in prayer

yet the answers are delayed for many years

it can cause the soul to become lachrymose

and leave the spirit feeling wretched and broken

in these seasons is when grace’s strength is spoken

by helping us to renew our heavenly  hope once again

this is when we are reminded that even though the answers

have not yet come to relieve our sorrows and sufferings

Love’s comfort is always there to carry us through!

Proverbs 15:13 (AMPC)

13 A glad heart makes a cheerful countenance, but by sorrow of heart the spirit is broken.
