A torrent came upon this soul

from whence I knew naught

it was not winsome nor was it cliche

this torrent tumbled me and dropped 

me over the edge beyond depths

of waters I had seen before…

It was different, it was new

scary, yet exhilarating…testing my

trust to go beyond myself and 

surrender to the Power that metamorphose

in unknown ways higher, greater than

what the human mind could ever conceive

a truly transformative gift of Love!

Sue Vincent’s Thursday Photo Prompt – Entrance #writephoto – Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, as long as it is fairly family-friendly.

Flirting with temptation

a deadly habit where

things and people outside oneself

become lord and master 

over the soul leading

to the threshold of

an entrance to a dark dwelling

where the soul remains

until in its bankruptcy

no light is found to be seen

a most beautiful place to be

to know the frailty of human

it is then the soul cries out

and Daylight dawns turning

frailty into Strength

laying to rest the deadly power

that once held the soul prisoner

Sue Vincent’s Weekly Thursday Photo Prompt – Keep #writephoto – Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, as long as it is fairly family-friendly.

A castle’s remnant

stands lone in the distance

having survived 

years of weathering

yet still maintains

its original, unique beauty

with which it was made

a beauty that will never fade

through the eyes of the cross…

a love that sees beauty 

in weathered flaws 

beyond the human eye.

My Angel I cherish

is not the one covered

in shiny tinsel

instead the One who

comforts a weary heart

turning lament into joy

and causing the Sun

to rise and set on the

horizon of my soul

filled with guaranteed hope

the Sun shall always rise

again at the Morn’s dawn

with Dew of gratitude

as my daily meal to 

carry me through another day
