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!

Truth Or Fable?

In Response To:

RDP Wednesday – Evidence

BrewNSpew Cafe Weekly Word Challenge – Fable – You may use the word(s), phrase and/or image to interpret the prompt.

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #54 – Every Wednesday I post a photo.  You respond with something CREATIVE.

An ancient building

centuries old

holds many thoughts

and secrets told

yet holy and sacred

where souls lived to pray

and listen to the angels sing

is this fable or a cliche

 evidence of truth

is quite revealing

 although derived from

circumstantial proof

one can only wonder

has the truth become aloof?

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.

This Mind

The Haunted Wordsmith Opposites Attract Challenge #16

For this challenge, I provide one word and a list of its antonyms. The challenge is to use the prompt word AND one (or more) of its antonyms in some form of writing (or creative work). 

Today’s word: crowded

Antonyms: bare, blank, devoid, empty, stark, vacant, void

Oh this mind…crowded

with so many thoughts

some that are welcome

and others that are not

~ * ~

The ones that are welcome here

bare my soul without any fear

a few of the thoughts can sometimes

leave me devoid of joy

~ * ~

Once in awhile I can blank out

on a precious thought

I so desperately wanted to keep

leaving a brokenness to weep

~ * ~

Then there are some

painful memories of the past

can leave an empty feeling on

what never came to pass

~ * ~

Remembrance of a time or two

when it felt like this soul

had almost been destroyed

these are the ones difficult to void

~ * ~

But all in all,

when it comes down to it

each and every thought,

memory, and remembrance is…

~ * ~

An exquisite rose with thorns

that His love will always adorn

with a crown of beauty

beholding Wisdom’s jewels

~ * ~

This, can only be gifted

through each step we take

of our spiritual pilgrimage

towards Eternity’s Gate.
