Love is kind, it thinks before speaking
Harsh words that damage tender hearts.
Love speaks kindness with a soft voice
That sooths hurting emotions.
Love has compassion
Love builds up others
Love is giving
Today is National “Love is Kind” Day.
I think it’s a day we should celebrate every day!
I am my mother’s face in the mirror,
As I speak her favorite quotes
To myself, that “This Too Shall Pass”.
I am dad’s voice echoing,
“Don’t Forget, Smell The Flowers”.
I am God’s Spirit,
To the world,

Things we’ve found
Things of beauty
Things chosen in haste
Things we’ll treasure forever
Things we let go to slip away
Things broken by their use or misuse
Things left behind, forgotten, unwanted
Things dreamed about yet never received
Things dreamed about that we’ve achieved
Things we never wanted but got
Things that rose up like weeds
Things we kept to appease others
Things we threw away
Things we’ve loved
Things we miss
#NaPoWriMo—Day 9–Prompt: write a list of things
Who are you that sits on a self made throne,
That’s padded with a pillow of pride,
Wearing a robe of perfection?
Your know-it-all attitude
And hastily pointing fingers,
Fill the air with dread,
As you speak words
That tear down
I wrote a poem today inside my head,
It’s positivity chased dread.
It’s words uplifted and carried,
Those dreary thoughts that tarried,
And freed my mind to see,
The joy awaiting me,
In a new day,
Where I may,
That silver cage that surrounded me
Had now become my closest friend.
I’d come to depend on it.
It was ready to support,
Always there for me.
How could I possibly
Let it go
It had stood ready to help me in the night.
When I was alone it brought me comfort.
I did not have to worry,
It wouldnt let me fall again.
I was safe with it,
Yet, it held me back.
No! Fear held me!
So I took the

NaPoWriMo 2018. Day 6
Today, we’d like to challenge you to write a poem that stretches your comfort zone with line breaks. That could be a poem with very long lines, or very short lines. Or a poem that blends the two.
We smiled, chittering and chattering
As daylight filled with bright sunshine
Spilled upon us walking sprightly.
In the distance a lion roared
But the sound did not reach
Our quiescent ears
Dulled by sleep.
Our guard down,
To stand and fight
The enemy attack.
Unprepared for battle,
Head and heart vulnerable
To fleshly fear and worldly anger,
We attempt to vanquish our beastly foe
Unprotected. We cry out for God to help us!
Reverse Etheree and Etheree
Based on 1Peter 5:8 and Ephesians 6:10-18
Fear envelopes like a wet blanket.
I shiver from cold thoughts filling my mind,
Flooding like a broken faucet,
Drowning me with anxiety.
I sit frozen with fear,
As darkness threatens.
Then light breaks thru,
My mind clears,
#Decastich Challenge or #10LPC
Looking for a place to run and hide.
Health problems falling like Fall leaves
Upon my foundation of faith.
Above me threatening
Fears loom like dark clouds,
And Doubts circle around,
Causing a chill,
Til I hear
He says in Psalm 32:7 that:
- He is my Hiding Place.
- He will protect me from trouble
- He will surround me and shout for my deliverance
Once again the leaves beneath my feet
Remind me of Summer’s recent passing
Some dressed in fall colors
Freshly fallen over night
Not yet devoid of life
Speak of coming days
Full of crisp air
To me and
