A meager slumber

toils the mind from

too many thoughts

clamped tightly within

speech becomes muted

unable to release thoughts

left in the unknown

with unanswered questions

awaiting Wisdom’s whisper

of guidance…

a pivotal moment

do I ride the waves on

Patience’s surfboard

– OR –

let these thoughts become

tsunamis that drown me…

in this moment I choose 

Patience inspired by 

lessons learned from

past tsunamis – 

all questions will be answered and

all things will work out for the good

– IN –

God’s perfect timing!

Repeating shapes formed

doing the same thing

over and over again

the soul slowly loses itself

in the dense fog of blindness

until…a succumb to surrender…

a crown jewel for the soul

at last insanity is halted

fog’s density is dissipated

perception is restored

by choice new shapes are fashioned

constantly growing, changing

broadening in understanding

freed from a monotonous prison

to a province of diversity unlimited

flourishing soul’s sane mind of peace,

joy and infinite creativity.

The Unnoticed Souls

Word Of The Day Challenge – Claim

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Champion – February 18, 2021 – Go where the prompt leads you and publish a post on your own blog that responds to the prompt. It can be any variation of the prompt and/or image. Please keep it family friendly. Prompts close 7 days from the close of my post.

It all begins with one soul

beatdown, broken, hopeless

hated, unwanted, abandoned

unloved, silently dying within

down in the valley’s darkness

drowning in its own tears

unspoken words of the heart

that only Love can hear and

give answer to their call…

Movement of the soul begins

a rising to the mountain top

these souls are the unnoticed

for they do not lay claim for themselves

they are the ones whose wings cannot be seen

lighthouses whose beam of Light shines 

bright through the darkest storm

whose peace is undisturbable, their

forgiveness, compassion, and love are

poured out unconditionally upon others

even for the ones that destroyed them…

They walk silently upon this earth

in humble gratitude for the Love that

breathed Life into their death…they are God’s

Champions Of Grace.

Wisdom Gained

In Response To:

Ragtag Daily Prompt – RDP Thursday – Tiptoe

Word Of The Day Challenge – Gloomy

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge – Repercussions 

Sadje’s What Do You See #67 – Photo prompt

When my heart becomes

gloomy

my first instinct is to 

tiptoe

around the issue and 

pretend

that all is a well and good

facade

but I have painfully learned the

repercussions

of avoidance the darkness shall

reign

leaving my heart 

imprisoned

unable to walk into the

Light

if I do not embrace it in

Love

that turns the darkness into

Sunshine

and repetitive foolish choices into 

Wisdom

Composed In Love

In Response To:

Ragtag Daily Prompt – Sangfroid

Your Daily Word Prompt – Lapse – January 14, 2021

With a lapse in composure

many things can be 

said and done that can

cut deep into the soul of

a fellow human being

leaving them broken and

feeling like they are worthless…

Let us be composed in Love

knowing we are all

precious and valued creations

of God

always conveying this truth 

to others in words and

most importantly…

actions

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.
