Standing on The Rock

Bird standing on rocks

I will never give up or in

Though the way is hard and long

Through fortitude I’ll win

I will never give up or in

I have Christ’s power within

To help me stay strong

I will never give up or in

Though the way is hard and long

Gifts of Joy

Wrapped gift boxes

Declaring today my Deserving Day

I am gifting myself abundant joys

Giving those worries and woes away

Declaring today my Deserving Day

Claiming bliss and joy mine to display

As negativity my heart deploys

Declaring today my Deserving Day

I am gifting myself abundant joys

Triolet

What do you deserve? Name it. All of it. What are you ready to let go of? Name that too. Then name the most gentle gift for yourself. Name the brightest song your body’s ever held. Summon joy like you would a child; call it home. It wanders, yes. But it’s still yours. —Rachel McKibbens

#NaPoWriMo 2019-Day 7-Prompt: Today, we’d like to challenge you to write a poem of gifts and joy. What would you give yourself, if you could have anything? What would you give someone else?

Mirrored

Is that really me or an imposter,

A pretender that looks like me?

That kind of action I don’t foster!

Is that really me or an imposter?

I dont see my name on the roster,

But a resemblance I do see!

Is that really me or an imposter,

A pretender that looks like me?

While waiting for my grandson today I caught an amusing site on video. My daughter’s porch has a mirrored medicine cabinet sitting on it waiting to be carried into the house that apparently caught the eye of a little bird.

I sat watching as the little bird saw his reflection in the mirror and kept trying to figure out who that other bird was. It was very cute to watch.

The Promise Of Spring

Crocus flower

Oh worry not weary one

Spring shall surely come

Winter shall soon be done

Oh worry not weary one

Spring’s life has begun

And winter must succum

Oh worry not weary one

Spring shall surely come

Triolet

While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease. Genesis 8:22

Looking back at where I’ve been

Won’t get me where I want to be

Thinking of what life was then

Looking back at where I’ve been

Mulling over where I was when

Hides the future from me

Looking back at where I’ve been

Won’t get me where I want to be

Where’s Normal?

Multicolored leaves

No Normal doesn’t live here

Guess it really never did

So don’t wait for it to appear

No normal doesn’t live here

And tis a word you’ll not hear

From this quite abnormal kid

No normal doesn’t live here

Guess it really never did

Triolet

#IArtDaily Day 25 Prompt: “Normal”, doesn’t live here anymore.

Embracing the abnormality of the creative life which is often unconventional, unusual, unique, and never mediocre.

Although I most often use forms in my poetry, I think the abnormality in it is that it many times it isn’t true conformity, and for me that’s ok because it’s my own take on traditional that’s abit irregular

New Year—No Fear

Moses and Red Sea

Stand still and you will see

The salvation of the Lord

Don’t look back, look at Me

Stand still and you will see

Deliverence! Free you’ll be

From that chronic pursuing hoard

Stand still and you will see

The salvation of the Lord

Triolet

And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. Exodus 14:13
