Are You?

Dandelion growing in cracked dry ground

Falling through life’s cracks?

Or are you a ground breaker?

Growing in the hard places,

Blooming where you’re planted,

In spite of dry times,

Letting nothing hold you back,

From reaching your goal?

Modeling tenacity,

Like teeming dandelions?

Insecurity Vanquished

Hands holding bible

Filled with doubt I elect to stand

Holding fast His words in my hand

I trust and overcome fear,

Embrace life, enemies sneer, as they disband

Florette

(Based on Psalm 37: 39-40

But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble. And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.)

Enveloped by Fear

Walker

That silver cage that surrounded me

Had now become my closest friend.

I’d come to depend on it.

It was ready to support,

Always there for me.

How could I possibly

Decide to

Let it go

For a

Cane?

It had stood ready to help me in the night.

When I was alone it brought me comfort.

I did not have to worry,

It wouldnt let me fall again.

I was safe with it,

Yet, it held me back.

No! Fear held me!

So I took the

Cane and

Walked!

Double Reverse Etheree

Today, we’d like to challenge you to write a poem that stretches your comfort zone with line breaks. That could be a poem with very long lines, or very short lines. Or a poem that blends the two.
