The King of Glory

King of Hearts altered playing card
Original ATC by Leona J. Atkinson

When the King comes,

In His glory.

Will the earth rejoice?

Syllabic Verse

This morning as I was creating some Christmas Artist Trading Cards for an upcoming group swap I decided to use one of the playing cards I had on hand for a background. The card I happened to choose was the King of Hearts. Immediately the chorus from the hymn “The King of Glory” popped into my head. This had to be sent by God as I have not heard nor sung this song for years.

Attitude of Gratitude

Fall leaves on November calendar

Like falling leaves

Blessings coming down

From Father of Lights

With whom there’s no end

Too many to count

So I just say “Thank You”

Syllabic Verse

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

James 1:17 KJV

Leaves at Play

Nature’s

Fall games

Yellow

Races red

Wind quits

No winners

Syllabic Verse

It was a fairly windy warm Fall day today and I enjoyed being outside just watching the wind blowing the leaves around. I missed out on getting a video of a group of leaves dancing as I didn’t have my camera ready in time but it was awesome to see them swirl and twirl together in sort of a whirlwind burst of air.

But I did capture another video of them looking like they were racing each other as a big gust of wind blew them along. Fun day! 😊

Posted in October 2019, Rhyme, Syllabic Verse

“Homeless—Single Mom”

Cardboard sign saying “Homeless—Single Mom”

Two little girls cry out in the night

“Mommy!” they say to no one in sight

A blanket of fear holds them tight

As strangers tell them “It’ll be alright”

Sitting on concrete at the light

Her youthful trembling hands of white

Hold up a sign stating her plight

Holding back tears with all her might

Twin girl’s Mom won’t give up the fight

To make their future bright

Rhyme

10 lines—each line 8 syllables—Rhyme

For the creative writing class I am currently taking I tried to rewrite my original Tanka written on September 4, 2019, into a 10 line poem using the line “sitting on concrete” while also using parts of the lines “thin white hands” and “two little girls” in some way.

This poem is what I came up with after quite some deliberation.
