CHANGE

Choices create it

Happenings cause it

Anxiety is often its result

No one is immune to it

Good often comes from it

Everyone will experience it

Endless

Eternal life,

Eternal life awaits

Everyone who will

Express true faith in Christ

Each one has a chance

Extend your your heart and

Embrace God’s free gift

Embodied in Jesus

Pleiades

This titled form was invented in 1999 by Craig Tigerman, Sol Magazine’s Lead Editor. Only one word is allowed in the title followed by a single seven-line stanza. The first word in each line begins with the same letter as the title. Hortensia Anderson, a popular haiku and tanka poet, added her own requirement of restricting the line length to six syllables.

Insecurity Vanquished

Hands holding bible

Filled with doubt I elect to stand

Holding fast His words in my hand

I trust and overcome fear,

Embrace life, enemies sneer, as they disband

Florette

(Based on Psalm 37: 39-40

But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble. And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.)

November’s New Traditions

Become quite a special day
Lasting longer each year
All those bargains are waiting
Commercials tell us loud and clear
Kick the Thanksgiving Day tradition
Forget family values held dear
Rise early or shop late
Ignore staying home with family near
December’s big day is coming
And shopping days are few we hear
Yes! Today we can shop and save
Such awesome deals will appear
All across town the stores are open
Let’s give thanks as we all cheer
Embracing commercialism
Society succumbs without a tear
