Raconteur

Quill Pen,

The quill speaks

Of days long ago.

In quivering

Quotations

It tells of quotidian

Events radiantly.

Shadorma

#NaPoWriMo 2019–Day 24–prompt is to write a poem that is inspired by a reference book. Locate a dictionary, thesaurus, or encyclopedia, open it at random, and consider the two pages in front of you to be your inspirational playground for the day.

(As you might guess I opened my dictionary to pages Q-R)

Tackling Thoughts

Bible, coffee cup, scripture verse, Psalm 94:19

Stress abounds

If we allow it to

Restrain it

Detain it

Take it captive and cast down

Imaginations

Shadorma

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 2 Corinthians 10:5 KJV

An Achiever

Hang Gliding

Be a day dreamer,

For its been said that

Those awake

Can achieve!

Dreaming with eyes wide open

Can be dangerous!

Shadorma

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible. — T. E. Lawrence

Family Peace

Rocks with hieroglyphic type wet imprints on them

Wet Footprints

Two hieroglyphics

Imprinted

Two symbols

Upon two rocks temporily

Ponder the meaning

Shadorma

Today my grand-son and I were outside in my yard taking some pictures of him before he left on a trip to do a show in Seattle. He is a music artist who performs hip hop. The grass was wet as it had rained earlier. As we walked back to go inside we had to step on some river rock I have near my patio. I happened to look down and saw that our shoes had left some strange looking imprints on various rocks. Two rocks in particular I noticed as looking like having hieroglyphic symbols on them, so I snapped a couple pics. Upon doing an internet search on hieroglyphic images I came to see a somewhat similarity to the symbols for Peace and Family, in some images of the Chinese alphabet, and family peace is something that I recently have been praying for. Is it too far fetched to think these wet shoe markings could be telling me we are taking steps towards Family Peace? I am not one who believes in co-incidences and I see meaning in many unordinary things. So I am led to believe perhaps God sent this as a sign to us.

Looking for Gumption

Nut tree orchard in winter

I’m fighting

The urge to not care

To give up

Abandon

All the minutes given

Me to use today

Shadorma

O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; Psalm 63:1
