Within their reach
Yet they seek the world’s meager scraps
My daughter sat on her porch and watched the two doves walk down the street together as if they were humans out for an evening stroll.
They had visited her yard previously to check it out, tasting of its goodness, yet today they bypassed her fresh green yard overflowing with beautiful foliage, birdseed, and a water filled birdbath, to forage in the dry, dusty gutter. Were they blind to the goodness nearby that was offered to them so freely, or did they just stubbornly choose to ignore it, determinedto live their in own way?
It makes one ponder if we humans are the same. Do we walk blindly through this world, seeking to find blessings and happiness in our own way while all the while passing by the goodness God has provided to those who will stop to believe and receive From Him?
God’s voice spoke,
And the morning stars sang.
The sons of God shouted for joy!
“ When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy”… Job 38:7
“Do Not Approach,
Or Attempt To Talk To
Me Before Morning Coffee”
NaPoWriMo 2018 Day 25
Today, we challenge you to write a poem that takes the form of a warning label . . . for yourself
Is what I heard.
Doctor’s smile and good words
Are a gift many don’t receive.
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
In Pedi land
We sit like Queens
Pampered and polished toes
Lying in my path
A reminder of You
Twig cross created by the wind’s breath
Yesterday as I went out to get my mail it was windy and raining so I was walking with my hood up and head down, when I noticed what looked like a tiny beautiful cross lying in a pool of water on the blacktop. It was fashioned of two light colored twigs that apparently were blown by the wind to end up in that position. The way the light hit it it almost appeared to look golden. It stopped me in my tracks that’s for sure! As I pulled out my phone to snap a picture I thanked God for sending me this reminder on the day before Palm Sunday!
They “Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.” John 12:13 KJV
What is “Palm Sunday”?
What is “Holy Week”?
Do unto others
As you’d wish them
To do unto you in all things
Practice everyday and you’ll be
