Like a Lamb

Three crosses on a hill

Legions of angels

Stood aimed, battle ready

To strike at command

As the Son of God

Stood in the dark garden and

Faced His accusers

His disciples ran

His betrayer kissed His cheek

Yet He was silent

Triple Haiku

He was oppressed and He was afflicted,

Yet He opened not His mouth;

He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,

And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,

So He opened not His mouth.

Isaiah 53:7

Manifold

Tamborine
“Manifold” Tambourine

Many kinds; numerous and varied:

Are God’s Grace and Wisdom shown

To beings in the heavenlies

And to those in the world

By us the church on earth

If we minister

To one another

With our

Gifts

Nonet

As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

1 Peter 4:10

To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, Ephesians 3:10

(The photo is of one of my Tambourines that I use in praise and worship. I name all my Tambourines as I feel each instrument has a different purpose. This Tamborine I named “Manifold” because it reflects light in so many ways. I use it in worship to praise God for His Manifold Grace And Wisdom according to the scriptures 1 Peter 4:10 and Ephesians 3:10 )

Dancing on Air

Angels in euphoric dance

Swirl in the great expanse

Over the clouds so puffy white

Heavenly beings full of delight

Mom is there joining in with glee

Eighteen years this day, there went she

Left earth aged with all its pain and woe

And flew to heaven with hair white as snow

Now in restored youth, she rejoices there

Dancing joyously with angels upon the air

Con-Verse

( I wrote this poem with my mom in mind as 18 years ago today she left this earth and went to heaven. She was 85 years old and I like to imagine that today she is in restored health and dancing on air with angels, as she always loved to dance when here on earth.)

(This is my first time writing this Form called:

Con-Verse, created by Connie Marcum Wong, which consists of three or more 2-line rhyming stanzas (couplets). The meter of this form is in syllabic verse.

Rhyme scheme: aa,bb,cc,dd,ee

Meter: 7,7,8,8,9,9,10,10,11,11)

(Syllabic verse only counts the number of syllables in a line.)

(This form consists of three or more couplets which ascend by one syllable up to and until you reach a syllabic count of eleven which would contain ten lines.

This process may be repeated for a longer verse. If repeated, you must begin your first couplet with the syllabic count of seven again and continue from there.)
