The Tree Of Life

Tree

Of Life

Nourishes

Branches extend

To reach the nations

With leaves of healing

Planted beside the River

Of Life in Heaven’s Paradise

Bearing twelve fruits for Overcomers

Who will dwell in the New Jerusalem

Providing supernatural provision

As they eat eternally from its abundant supply

Observe then, and believe this wonderful truth

The Tree of Life

Can be for you

Accept Christ and

Live eternally

Tree of Life Poem/Shape Poem
Based on scriptures:  Genesis 2:2, Revelation 2:7, Revelation 21:2, Revelation 22:2, Ezekiel 47:12

Seashore Sunset Senses

Sunset at Depoe Bay, Oregon, photo by Vivian Marcin 2018

Breathing in so deeply

Scents of seaweed and crisp air

As gulls seranade

And ocean foam caresses

Sand covered toes

Sunset glistens like gold

Shimmering on waves

That meet rocks and waiting cheek

With a salty kiss goodnight

NaPoWriMo 2018 Day 26

challenge is to write a poem that includes images that engage all five senses. Try to be as concrete and exact as possible with the “feel” of what the poem invites the reader to see, smell, touch, taste and hear

Sweet Sound

Woman Doctor speaking “All Healed”

“All healed”

Is what I heard.

Doctor’s smile and good words

Are a gift many don’t receive.

Blessing!

NaPoWriMo 2018 Day 23

“when you hear it, you write it down.” Today, we challenge you to honor this idea with a poem based in sound. The poem, for example, could incorporate overheard language. Perhaps it could incorporate a song lyric in some way, or language from something often heard spoken aloud (a prayer, a pledge, the Girl Scout motto). Or you could use a regional or local phrase from your hometown that you don’t hear elsewhere

Imagination Land

Pig flying

Sitting backwards in a corner of my circle

Wearing my Saturday best

I watched as the stars rearranged themselves in the sky

To greet the sun rising in the west

So awestruck was I

I barely ducked a herd of pigs flying by

One of them wearing a polka dot vest

Laughing at me in jest

I turned my back on time as it faced me

The clock striking thirteen in protest

The circle I was in was becoming a square

As a mouse was put to the test

To eat an elephant for lunch

Feeling stressed at his first munch

I was glad I was just a guest

In this imaginary backwards land of reverse

And now I’m choosing to end this verse

Nonsense Rhyme
