Well preserved

At His right hand

Pleasures eternal

Joy filled earthly life path

Is mine

Cinquain

(Poetry based on verses from Psalm 16)

Preserve me, O God:

for in You do I put my trust.

You will show me the path of life:

in Your presence is fulness of joy;

at Your right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Counting Blessings

Number 13

Thirteen

My lucky number

That’s the date of my birth

Glad mom wasn’t superstitious

That day

Cinquain

OctPoWriMo Day 29

Theme: By The Numbers

Most people think the number 13 is an unlucky number but since I was born on that day I have had to consider it positively as my parents always thought me to be a blessing to them and weren’t superstitious.

(Besides, I was born on a Tuesday not on a Friday!) 😊

Presidental Proverb

Teddy Roosevelt pic and quote

“Speak softly”

Said Roosevelt

“And carry a big stick”

Passive-Agressive acumen

Old adage

Cinquain

On my walk today I met a gentleman who, in actuality, was walking with a big stick.

As we passed by one another and nodded a greeting, I spoke the quote to him and he smiled. “ Teddy Roosevelt” he said.

“ Oh, I thought it was Snoopy!” I said laughing.

When I got home a Google search proved the stick walker was right!

Guess I got my history lesson for the day!

Plus, a poem inspiration. 😊
