Strong Standing Faith—Faith Standing Strong–Revised Poem

FAITH-VintageBoot-Rose-Scripture
Faith holds strongly
Belief based deeply
Un-battered, Un-broken
Heart un-swaying
Joyfully dances securely
Soul peaceful
Doubts fly away
Faith stands firm
Beliefs rooted deep

Unshaken

Deep rooted beliefs
Firm stands faith
Away fly doubts
Peaceful soul
Securely dances joyfully
Un-swaying heart
Un-broken, Un-battered
Deeply based belief
Strongly holds faith

Blessings and Sorrows

As blessings come

So do many sorrows

All have some

Present, or tomorrows

Like a beating drum

Life constantly harrows

As blessings come

So do many sorrows

Keep the faith to overcome

And stand strong in all the morrows

Rhyme

Inspired by:–Don Moen–“Be It Onto Me” song lyrics:

You promised to carry our sorrows
Lord, we believe it’s true
You promised unending tomorrows
Lord we receive them from you

Abstract or Fact

Two Images of grease on a grill. One original and one digitally enhanced
Original left—Altered right—@Leona J. Atkinson photos 2019

Don’t believe all you see

Things aren’t always as they seem

What looks real may not be

Don’t believe all you see

Could be false or reality

Could be true or just a dream

Don’t believe all you see

Things aren’t always as they seem

Triolet

My mom used to always say “Don’t believe anything you read and only half of what you see”.

I was reminded of this today as I took a photo last night of the left over cooled grease on my grill. I had cooked a hamburger for supper and when I went to clean the grill the grease and bits of leftover cheese had formed an interesting pattern, I thought, so I snapped a picture and just for fun put the image into one of the photo enhancing apps I have to see what would result if I edited it a bit.

The result was quite awesome!

What transformed was somewhat of a celestial looking image I thought. Certainly not something that looked like grease and cheese on a grill! 😊

Goes to show mom was right. Things aren’t always as they seem or look like.

What do you think?

Strong Standing Faith—Faith Standing Strong

Tree in leaves blowing in wind, rooted deep

Tree holding strongly

Roots digging deeply

Un-battered,Un-broken

Leaves swaying

Branches dancing wildly

Whipping winds lashing

Tree standing firm

Rooted deep

Unshaken

Deep rooted

Firm standing tree

Lashing winds whipping

Wildly dancing branches

Swaying leaves

Un-broken, Un-battered

Deeply digging roots

Strongly holding tree

Since today is a “Palindrome Day”—9/19/19–19/19/9, I decided to write a Palindrome Poem.
