Spring Senses

Spring wreath with flowers, bird and butterflies

Waking to the sound

Of a dove’s soft cooing,

My sleepy eyes delight

At sunshine, and the morning

Sounds of baby birds.

Taste awakening anew,

I touch life boldly

Smelling it’s fragrant winds that

Promise new life again.

Raconteur

Quill Pen,

The quill speaks

Of days long ago.

In quivering

Quotations

It tells of quotidian

Events radiantly.

#NaPoWriMo 2019–Day 24–prompt is to write a poem that is inspired by a reference book. Locate a dictionary, thesaurus, or encyclopedia, open it at random, and consider the two pages in front of you to be your inspirational playground for the day.

(As you might guess I opened my dictionary to pages Q-R)

“The Starry Night”

“The Starry Night” painting by Vincent Van Gogh 1889
“The Starry Night” painting by Vincent Van Gogh in 1889

Down below

We dont really know

What swirls above

And dwells thereof

In that starry night

That lies beyond our sight

Among the clouds of white

Floating in a sea of blue

Are things hidden from our view

We can dream and contemplate

Research, study and debate

Yet we’ll not truly know my friend

Until our life reaches its earthly end

11:11

Alarm clock with hands pointing to 11:11

I often see the time 11:11 on clocks

Some think it’s a angelic sign

Some say it’s promising sucess

But really, it’s not either of those

It’s telling me I’m late to work

Posted in Abecedarian, April 2019, NaPoWriMo 2019, Scripture

My Life from A to Z

Letters A and Z

Alien

Because I was without

Christ, living in

Darkness

Ensnared, a

Foreigner to Israel, without

God and without

Hope, a gentile in

Israel and to all

Jews

Knowing not the

Love of God, believing in

Myths

Not knowing the truth

Of the wonderful

Promises of God

Questioning life’s purpose

Running from truth, a

Stranger to the covenant of Promise

Then, through God’s grace

Understanding the gospel brought me to

Victory in Christ, and I was a

Wanderer no more, a

Xenos no more, I belonged and was

Yoked to Christ forever in

Zion, the New Jerusalem.

Abecedarian

(Based on Ephesians 2)
