Dreams Do Come True

Grandson in LA

Hollywood streets paved with dreams

Where some stars shine bright

Grandson is livin’ his it seems

He’s walking those streets tonight 

Syllabic Rhyme

My oldest grandson is a music artist in LA tonight to perform a show there on Friday. Tomorrow is his 25th birthday. He is so excited because he dreamed his whole life that someday he would go to LA and now he’s there for his birthday and to perform a show. I am so happy for him that his dream came true!

Thoughts On Love

The word LOVE

Love never ends.

It’s easy to love someone

Who also loves you

Someone who’s true

Who’s patient and kind

And of the same mind

It’s easy to love that someone

It’s not easy to love someone

Who doesn’t love you

Someone who’s untrue

Who’s impatient and unkind

And of a different mind

It’s not easy to love that someone

But Jesus said to love everyone

Even that someone

Who doesn’t love you

Who’s impatient and untrue

Of a different mind or unkind

Who’s arrogant and rude everyday

Who selfishly insists on their own way

Loving everyone is not easy, tis true

But it’s something Jesus told us to do

Rhyme

Jesus said: “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you,…” John 13:34

What 1 Corinthians 13 says about Love:

Love is patient and kind;

love does not envy or boast;

it is not arrogant or rude

It does not insist on its own way;

it is not irritable or resentful;

it does not rejoice at wrongdoing,

but rejoices with the truth.

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never ends.

Seeking Truth

Bible, scripture, Hebrews 4:12,
Inner voice

Telling is me 

Just what I should do and say

I check God’s word to prove it true

Always

Cinquain

For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it pierces even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow. It is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

Hebrews 4:12

True Identity?

Stalk of Wheat?--Tanka poem
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona j. Atkinson ©2015

Today as I was walking on my College Campus going to an appointment with my academic counselor, I happened to look down and noticed this, what I thought to be, stalk of wheat.  Just laying there on the footpath, all by itself, and not a wheat field in sight.  Quite odd, I thought.  I picked it up to take home, quite excited because I had never had the chance to have a stalk of wheat before.:)  But….then I got to thinking about the parable in Matthew 13:24-30 and I began to wonder if it might be a tare…..Something to consider….and to ponder, why it happened to be right in my path today…..??  Perhaps it’s purpose was only to inspire me to write this poem 🙂
