Poem Dweller

Book with letters flowing out

Today

I live in a dictionary

With words as house mates

We’re building

Together

A poem

Called Meta

Composed of verses

It alphabetically speaks

In words

Reverse Mirror Cinquain/Meta poem

(One definition of Meta is: “pertaining to or noting an abstract, high-level analysis or commentary, especially one that consciously references something of its own type.”)

Speaking Alphabetically

World map created from alphabet letters

A slip of the tongue

Brings heartache if

Careless words are spoken and

Damage can be done to a tender heart.

Even if you apologize and ask

Forgiveness theres no

Getting the words back once they’re spoken.

Honestly, words can be like arrows that

Inflict pain if they are

Judging words, but if they are

Kind words, spoken in

Love with true

Meaning and compassion behind them,

Not only will they do good, but they might

Open the door to end someone’s

Pain, or help someone

Quit a bad habit.

Remember to think before you

Speak, and

Try to always choose

Uplifting words that will bring

Victory into someone’s life, for

Words are powerful!

X-ray each one for harmful effects before

You speak it, for we all need to be

Zealous to make sure our words are good.

Resting in Him

Bible, coffee cup, Psalm 94:19 scripture

As my heart fills with perplexity

And threatens to overwhelm my soul

My minds fills with Your words to me

Comforting with precious

Promises so sweet

And remembrance

Of Your care

Towards

Me

Nonet

In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul. Psalm 94:19 KJV

A Classic

Image of Clark Gable and Vivian Leigh in Gone With The Wind

What a novel idea said he

Nurtured in conspiracy

Yet, born out of necessity

It’s words still live quite timelessly

Syllabic Verse

“Gone With The Wind” written in 1936 by Margaret Mitchell is still my favorite novel and movie of all time

Plum Talk

Plum tree full of ripe purple plums

I’ve been Plum tired,

And at times Plum tuckered,

But Plum crazy I’m not

Senryu

A bit of humor in my poem today. 😊

Seeing this plum tree while on my walk a few days ago caused me to remember some old phrases my dad used to say when I was a kid.
