Bits and pieces in my heart

Beautiful collage

Thankful

Thankful, leaves

Thankful for full plates now empty

Thankful for hands that cook and bake

Thankful for another day

Thankful for hearts that care

Thankful for thirst now quenched

Thankful for warm places

Thankful for

My life

Thankful

Fragile

Box makes Fragile

Boxes

All shapes

And all sizes

Like people

They hold things inside

Secrets, treasures, dreams

Or maybe unwanted things like

Bitterness, unforgiveness

Handle all boxes with care because

They can be damaged inside and out

A Rebellious House

Closed door, sorry we’re closed sign

Dwelling in the midst

Of closed eyes, ears, and minds

Rebellious house

Shuttered ears are deaf

To the truth knocking

Closed eyes can’t see the truth

Through shuttered windows

Mutinous minds existing

Behind hostility’s doors

Choka

Poem based on this scripture:

“Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a rebellious house.” Ezekiel 12:2

NaPoWriMo 2018 Day 20

Prompt: write a poem that involves rebellion in some way.

The Passive Line

People

Among strangers

In line together

Mumbling

Grumbling

Shuffling feet in weariness

I stood behind you

As you spoke

A breath of fresh air

Uplifted

Awakened

My senses, because your words changed

The whole atmosphere.

Words full of

Positivity,

Thankfulness,

Permeated

And turned strangers into

Lively comrades
