Gifts of Joy

Wrapped gift boxes

Declaring today my Deserving Day

I am gifting myself abundant joys

Giving those worries and woes away

Declaring today my Deserving Day

Claiming bliss and joy mine to display

As negativity my heart deploys

Declaring today my Deserving Day

I am gifting myself abundant joys

Triolet

What do you deserve? Name it. All of it. What are you ready to let go of? Name that too. Then name the most gentle gift for yourself. Name the brightest song your body’s ever held. Summon joy like you would a child; call it home. It wanders, yes. But it’s still yours. —Rachel McKibbens

#NaPoWriMo 2019-Day 7-Prompt: Today, we’d like to challenge you to write a poem of gifts and joy. What would you give yourself, if you could have anything? What would you give someone else?

Resting in Him

Bible, coffee cup, Psalm 94:19 scripture

As my heart fills with perplexity

And threatens to overwhelm my soul

My minds fills with Your words to me

Comforting with precious

Promises so sweet

And remembrance

Of Your care

Towards

Me

Nonet

In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul. Psalm 94:19 KJV

Mom Thoughts

Welcome Bear lawn statue

How fast the toilet paper goes

And the shampoo too

Food in the fridge

vanishes

Yet laundry and trash pile up

The house is filled with people

Chattering, moving,

Echoing life

To rooms once empty and silent

Peace is now hard to find

Among so many different

Personalities

Cupboards are looking bare

As is my bank balance

But my heart is happy

The kids are home again

Free Verse

(Inspired by my daughter whose four grown children are all living at home with her and my son-in-law again for awhile)

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.
