Temptation of Empty



Some seasons full with

Emptiness, palpably dim

Tempting soul to bail

Flee oppressive circumstance…

Hold steady beneath Hope’s hand

Balm and Broadsword




Mind’s ceaseless battle

Lying thoughts an avalanche

Searing chill which burns

Soul’s temperature fevered

God’s truth spreads balm, wields broadsword

Ephesians 6:16-17, “take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Berean Study Bible

Scrapings of dried blood

Vase glazed, colors vibrant swirl

Dizzying beauty beheld

Life, A Tournament




Life’s like tournament

Though rules can be confusing

Requires chivalry

Depends on nobility

Play with heart, that all might win

Zombies Scare Nanny


Today’s prompt: report, nanny, zombies

News report, “Zombies”

Nanny’s all a-flutter, frets

Children hug, comfort

Repeat parents’ oft-told line

“Don’t be scared, it’s just pretend”

Celebrate Achievements


Celebrate each one

Achievements grand, and lesser

Poems pretty penned

Soul’s sore trials overcome

Another day, race well run

Euphonious Morning


Wind chimes wake darkness

Hymn of joyful glory’s praise

Gulls’ crying ceases

Dawn’s bright birdies tweet alert

Pale curtain raised, “comes more snow!”
