Prime Time

Pooh Bear Drawing, Shadorma Poem

Sometimes

You need to just sit

Pondering

Not doing

Waiting for inspiration

To bring something

Shadorma

“Ah yes, doing nothing often leads to the very best of something” —Pooh

(I was so inspired while watching the movie “Christopher Robin” recently! I loved the story and found myself pausing the DVD many times to write down various quotes of things that Pooh said. One such quote inspired this poem 😊)

Fear’s Shadow

Shadow, poetry,
Image and poetry created by Leona J. Atkinson

It came creeping

In the dark night of my soul

Fear over shadowed

Covering like a thick fog

I lay paralized

Frozen in its doubt and dread

Until a shaft of hope

Broke through the darkness bringing

Strenght to rise and overcome

Choka

“When you face fear it evaporates. Shadows cannot stand light. —LeAura Alderson

This quote by LeAura is very true.

And this poem I wrote today is written from one of my true experiences with fear. We must face our fears and when we do they will dissipate.

Shakespeare also said it well:

“Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.”

(This quote has also helped me to face fears many times in my life.)

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

What calls for your attention

In the dark and dreary night,

Or in morning’s light of day?

What is it that reaches forth

To capture your attention

On an ordinary day?

Grasp it, and record its birth

Within your mind, hands and heart.

Detail it in an artform

To share with all the world.

Syllabic Verse

“Art is born in attention. Its midwife is detail.”

~Julia Cameron, American artist, author and teacher
