Shine Your Light

Be a flashlight

Shine a light

On darkness

Reveal things

To help guide

Those lost

Be a flashlight

Be ready

Offer help

When needed

Syllabic Verse

This poem was inspired by an incident I had the other day as I was creating art.

I needed to see deep down into a vase I was using, and since my iPhone was in my pocket I remembered it had a built in flashlight option which I could easily flip on to shine light down into the vase and reveal what, if anything, might be inside.

This experience reminded me that I should always be ready to be a light bearer whenever and wherever needed.

Artist’s Coping Technique

USPS Art Project info

Covered in paper and paste

I walk through a forest of canvas

As I ponder my next step

Lost in the world of art

Deep in pools of paint

I use a brush

To blot out

The daily

News

I and many other artists around the USA are getting involved in a creative movement to help support the US Post Office as well as exhibit our creativity through art collaboration.

Grieving

Chaos acrylic painting

Peace is lost, chaos reigns,

As masked voices protest

“We cannot breathe”.

Colors war with one another,

All seeking their rights,

As Covid looms, bringing death.

“Be gone from us!”

We cry out in desperation

Grieving for what used to be.

Searcher of the Scattered

Ezekiel 34 scripture

As a Good Shepherd

The Lord God

Seeks, saves His sheep

Syllable Lune

For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.”

Ezekiel 34:11-12 KJV

World Overview

Man racing with time

Quickly jotted notes

Faceless friends and family

Life passing by

Living in a timeclock

Checking Apple’s watch

Running life’s racetrack

In a zombie world

Filled with roads to nowhere

Lonely souls needing God.

A List Of Things

Clipboard with list

Things

Things lost

Things broken

Things we’ve found

Things of beauty

Things chosen in haste

Things we’ll treasure forever

Things we let go to slip away

Things broken by their use or misuse

Things left behind, forgotten, unwanted

Things dreamed about yet never received

Things dreamed about that we’ve achieved

Things we never wanted but got

Things that rose up like weeds

Things we kept to appease others

Things we threw away

Things we’ve loved

Things we miss

Things lost

Dead End

Making unwise choices

Following blind guides

Leads to securing

Path of broken dreams

Do not remain there

Turn around, go back

Gather scattered pieces

To recreate your dreams

Syllabic Verse
