Writer’s Question

Speak, Listen

Write every day.

I must have a lot to say.

Does anyone read?

Senryu

Many of us wonder this I am sure.

Though I don’t write to receive feedback it is always appreciated.

Thank you for reading my poems and all the likes and comments you’ve posted over the years. 😊

U-Turn

U Turn icon

When I read your word

I thought, and I turned my feet.

I made haste

To try to obey your commandments,

And walk in your ways each day.

Tanka

“I thought on my ways, and turned my feet unto thy testimonies. I made haste, and delayed not to keep thy commandments.”

Psalms 119:59-60 KJV
