Word For The Day…

From Gratefulness.org

The most fortunate are those who have a wonderful capacity to appreciate again and again, freshly and naively, the basic goods of life, with awe, pleasure, wonder and even ecstasy.

Temptation’s Wicked Tease – Sedoka Poem

MLMM Sunday Writing Prompt – “gasm”

For this week’s prompt I want you to write about something that often eludes description, pleasure.

The Sedoka is an unrhymed poem made up of two three-line katauta with the following syllable counts: 5/7/7, 5/7/7. A Sedoka, pair of katauta as a single poem, may address the same subject from differing perspectives.


Sensual pleasure
sweet, silky, smooth to the tongue
rapturously orgasmic

just for a moment
not an eternal treasure
but temptation’s wicked tease

A Recipe For The Soul’s Milkshake

November Writing Prompts #NaNoWriMo – Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Word Prompts: mediocrisy & milkshakes

A Recipe For The Soul's Milkshake

To keep the soul vibrantly alive
add these ingredients to its milkshake
so that the soul may always thrive
First add a cup of the milk of Love
guaranteed to never run out
for it flows from Heaven above
Next, add the sweetness of Joy abundant
never will it become redundant
Then, add the flavor of Peace overflowing
and Eternal River unending
Be sure to never allow the bitterness
of mediocrisy to bleed in
for it will poison the life within
Last, blend it all together
and drink to your heart’s pleasure
that you may thrive beyond
to find for yourself a Divine treasure!

Within, Without


Sunny…warm sunshine…breezy winds
uneasy thoughts…different day…different time
afternoon instead of early morn…more busyness
more people…more distraction…more noise
where’s my quiet calm…within…

The busyness of the afternoon
as opposed to…
the quiet calm of early morn
desiring for my circumstance
to change ever so soon
that my heart not remain forlorn
but through it all…

I have joy that is my strength
a divine confidence to walk tall
and endurance to go the length
hope that is my anchor
faith to follow the Plan
living for the spiritual lore
and telling of the Mighty Hand
for I am more than a conqueror
this is my promise in all these things
and the reason my heart sings

This the gift from God
to a soul so beautifully flawed!
