Searching the scriptures

Unearthing a nugget of truth

Seek and you shall find

Senryu

I love taking inspired journeys that the Holy Spirit leads me on either when I am alone or with someone else.

When’s the last time you went “digging for gold” within the pages of your bible?

My grandson and I often do that together and it always leads us to some exciting finds and increased knowledge.

Sunday Service At Sea

Sea Shantie (or Chantie) about a Sunday Church Service at Sea
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona J. Atkinson ©2016

#NaPoWriMo–Day 26–Prompt: a challenge to write a poem that incorporates a call and response. Calls-and-responses are used in many sermons and hymns (and also in sea chanties (or shanties)!), in which the preacher or singer asks a question or makes an exclamation, and the audience responds with a specific, pre-determined response. (Think: Can I get an amen?, to which the response is AMEN!.). You might think of the response as a sort of refrain or chorus that comes up repeatedly, while the call can vary slightly each time it is used.
I wrote a Sea Shantie (or Chantie) in which I imagined what a Sunday Service at sea would be like conducted by a fiery Spirit-filled preacher aboard a ship filled with sailors. 🙂
