Thoughtful Encouragement

Two birds in a nest lawn ornament

In a busy world

That’s been slowed down by the

Corona Virus

Opportunities exist

To consider one another

Tanka

“and let us consider [thoughtfully] how we may encourage one another to love and to do good deeds,”

Hebrews 10:24 AMP

My Goal

Chipmunk gathering acorns in the Fall
Original art by Leona J. Atkinson 2020

Gathering

My mind

Always open

As I go about my day

To gather information for

Sharing

With others

Sifting out the negative it

Stores tidbits to encourage

Help and inspire

Your day

Butterfly Cinquain

It is my goal and hope that I can do this daily, and that is why I write poetry and create art.

Thank you for following my blog.

I hope my daily posts accomplish my goal and that in some way you are uplifted them.

Two Words

Two Words, Hope, Despair

I shot a cruel word into the air

Hitting the tablet of a heart

It crushed and laid it bare

I shot a kind word into the air

With loving thought and care

A hope and dream it did impart

Rhyme

Words have power to destroy or build up.

Think before you speak.

National Compliment Day

Bouquet of Flowers, compliments

Admire someone today

Bless them too

Compliments pay

Delights spew

Encouraging words say

Favors do

Give thanks or pray

Honor a few

Inspire not inveigh

Just give a hug or two

Kindness display

Laud anew

Make someone’s day

Nod out of the blue

Ovation convey

Praise imbue

Quiet gratitude portray

Uplift in the midst of ado

Visit to chase away gray

Write thoughtful words true

X-out actions that cause dismay

Yes, bless others all day through

Zip berating, give a kudos bouquet
