Hope Resurrected (NaPoWriMo)

For Holy Saturday…

I will touch His hem, be healed…

Kneel at His cross, where Love did bleed.

I will pour from heart my tears and praise

Be lifted up…thus, hands to Him I raise.

For grace and mercy reign with Risen King

Hope resurrected, blessed Lord, I sing.

Dressed in radiance, my Savior lives…

Shed Blood covers sins, yes, Christ forgives.

Phoenix (NaPoWriMo)


From our Host:  “And now for our early-bird prompt (optional, like all our prompts!) Today, we’d like to challenge you to write a poetic self-portrait. And specifically, we’d like you to write a poem in which you portray yourself in the guise of a historical or mythical figure.”

With brother, sister Phoenices

I rally!  Lift head, not prideful

Arrogance…grateful victory cry.

Wear pinions, smoky pewter hue

Silvered by furnace, tested true…

Fragrant triumph, no hint of burning.

Life strikes firestone, I fall a-flaming…

Yet wait, now watch a radiance rising:

Wings spread again, on wafted poetry

Beneath God’s caring vigilant eye…

His grace unclouded, goodness rich

His heart holds nary shadow of turning.*

Lady Twilight



Sheer gossamer haze


Dressed for twilight dinner


Lavender boa, clouds amid blue…

Sky’s radiance subtle, honored Lady makes eagerly awaited entrance.
