Bit Bewildered

Question Marks

Reading today’s news

Some days are so obscure

Obfuscating words

Senryu

Dictionary.com’s Word for the Day is “Obfuscate”. It seemed very fitting as I read some of today’s news reports.

Choices

Crack in sidewalk that looks like a Y or two paths

Two paths lay before me

Where will they lead my feet

If I go left where will I be

Two paths lay before me

If I go right what will I see

I wonder if in the end both will meet

Two paths lay before me

Where will they lead my feet

Where Are You?

Field, clouds, sky

Is there someplace you’d rather be?

Or are you in your comfort zone?

Are you settled or wanting to be free?

Is there someplace you’d rather be?

Seeking a dream or a vision you see?

Need help or like being alone?

Is there someplace you’d rather be?

Or are you in your comfort zone?

Searching for Inspiration

Who? What? When? Why? Where? Words In a cloud image
Uninspired, and I’m trying to write.

Who, What, When, Why, Where?

Why are some days such a fight?

Uninspired, and I’m trying to write,

But just a blank page is in my sight.

You know, some days just aren’t fair!

Uninspired, and I’m trying to write,

Who, What, When, Why, Where.

Angel’s Trumpet

Angel's Trumpet Flower
Where will you be at the last trump’s sound?

Will you be above or below ground?

Tis a question To consider…

Whether hither or thither?

However we ponder,

Of how we’ll go yonder,

We can’t know,

Til we,

Go.

Nonet
#NaPoWriMo 2017 Challenge today was to write a nine-line poem. I chose a Nonet, which I also rhymed. 

Image is an “Angel’s Trumpet” Flower which I had the pleasure to see and photograph at a recent visit to a Spring “Garden Palousa” Event. The plant’s name caused me to ponder upon the scripture verse in 1Corinthians 15:51-52

“Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”

What If?

What if your dream came true today?
Would you enjoy it, or look for another to come your way?

What if all your cares were taken away?
Would you truly be able to enjoy the day?

What if a miracle was granted to you?
Would you give thanks to whom it was due?

What if all your wishes came true ?
Would you be happy or seek more for you?

What if, after change came, you did concur,
that things were better the way they were?
