Daydreaming on a Dreary Winter Day

Dreaming

Of warm soft breezes

Where colorful flowers

Dance to the sound of birdsong

Springtime

Silly is

As silly does

So silly does as silly

Says on a silly Saturday

So silly!

Trying to be “silly” today and this poem ended up as a bit of a “Tonque Twister”! 😊

Life Choices

Tis true

Life is made of choices

So think before acting

For what we choose determines

Our fate

Stepping

Forward covered,

Wearing the shield of faith.

Walking towards eternity,

In Him.

Modern Slavery

Modern Slavery Info GraphicImage provided by Dressember.org

Victims

Know no freedom

Mired in slavery

They pray and hope for a victor

To come

Cinquain

Modern slavery exists today in many places worldwide. Be it sexual exploitation, forced marriage, or forced labor, many women, men and children are victims.

You can help set them free by spreading awareness, making a donation to help one of the many organizations in their fight to stop this, or simply just pray that those who can help or intervene will do so.

I have teamed up with Dressember.org this month as a Advocate to spread awareness and raise funds. If you’d like to donate to my team’s campaign “Help Stop the Chains of Abuse” I would very much appreciate your support.

Handmade Origami Dress Ornaments I will be giving a free handmade Origami Dress Ornament to anyone who makes a donation of $5.00 or more by December 15th.

Thank you.

Some Thoughts on This Last Day of November 2019

November 2019 calendar with fall leaves on it

Consider…

You can’t go back

And erase the past

You can go forward to create a

future

Next month I have chosen to do a challenge called “Dressember.”

For this challenge I have committed to wear a dress everyday for the month of December in order to raise awareness (and funds) in the campaign against human trafficking and modern slavery.

So some of my poetry next month may reflect on this as I journey thru each day of the challenge.

I will be making daily posts on my personal blog about my journey regarding this challenge as well as posting pics and info about Dressember and the fight against human trafficking and abuse.

If any of you would like to follow me on this journey I invite you to subscribe to my other blog at: Blog | Leona J. Atkinson | Inspirational Writer/Artist
