Her Face

In Response To:

What Do You See #136 – May 30, 2022

A cut soul bleeds

stained tears upon 

her face

a betrayal so deep

words cannot express

her face

the completed masterpiece

sorrow’s beauty

Sadje’s What Do You See #135 – May 23, 2022 – Write an original story, poem or a caption.

Yet another path to walk

an unending journey in life

sometimes tiring to endure

will it be winding, rugged,

smooth or straight with

obstacles to overcome or

this time will it be the path

I hunger and ache for

gentle, loving, peaceful

a place where I can

finally experience rest

for my body and soul…

only time will tell

So Beautifully Flawed

If all you see

is the facade 

of this mask

then you do not see me

Look beyond my skin color

and this imperfect body

gaze into my eyes

see this soul’s light

filled with Love

that accepts you

just as you are

as we all are…

so beautifully flawed.

The Love Train

In Response To:

Your Daily Word Prompt – Liven – January 5, 2021

Sadje’s What Do You See #63Does this picture inspire you to write something?

Alas, the sun has set

upon this once vibrant 

train station

alive with souls traveling 

the same destination

until suddenly the world

took a turn for the worst

turning to violent rebellion

over things only seen by

the carnal mind that 

aspires to nothing higher

than a hostile, self-centered,

and selfish state-

a spiritual death…

But we can liven this death

by leaving behind the carnal mind

and reboarding the Love Train

traveling the same destination

to a Higher Mind of Love

All are welcome!

Yet, another mask

painted in brilliant colors

sparkling glitter and

neon brush stokes

catching the attention 

of all eyes passing by…

But the dispirited eyes

behind the mask

speak of truth hidden

the ache of the lost soul

desperate to be set free

from the prison of facade

Sadje’s What Do You See #8 – Does this picture inspire you to write something?

When the soul has been

hewn to love beyond itself

precious is the grace that

has borne another’s burden

~ * ~

Galatians 6:2-3 (AMP)

2 Carry one another’s burdens and in this way you will fulfill the requirements of the law of Christ [that is, the law of Christian love]. 3 For if anyone thinks he is something [special] when [in fact] he is nothing [special except in his own eyes], he deceives himself.

A Dead Place

Sadje’s What Do You See #7 – Does this picture inspire you to write something?

As they journeyed through the vault

in search of a priceless treasure

they found it to be vacant and silent

of the lyrics and rhythm that gives one purpose

to live and partake in the abundance of life…


They chose not to dive deep into the ocean of grace

to capture the music that would carry them through

the waves of sorrows, pains, unbearable grief into

healing calm waters of Love’s strength, joys and 

incomparable heights beyond human realms…


But alas, they let fear imprison them into quietus

for a soul without music is a dead place.

A Higher Realm

In Response To:

Sadje’s What Do You See #6 – Does this picture inspire you to write something?

The Light dawned upon

a darkened road

choosing a special

place to begin

an unrealized journey

for a newly borne soul

saying: “Follow Me

I will lead you

and guide you

into an unspeakable

Higher greatness!”

She followed and

the promise still

holds true.
