Always Something New to Learn

On WordPress!

What is a conversational poem? Dialogue poems vary in length and may involve arguments, conversations that tell stories, statements of varying perspectives and witty repartee. They usually involve two people who take turns talking. The conversation may sound natural or occur in rhyming verse, depending on the author. There are no precise rules for writing a dialogue poem; however, the poem is usually based on an exchange of dialogue between two people who approach a subject from different viewpoints. (source)

Okay I’ll try! Using these paint chips below: Now YOU Try!

“Let’s go into this Highlighter store,”
“Why?
“I like the name, HIGHLIGHTER STORE.”

“Forget it, been there, done that,
more like a Supernova store,
with a lot of nothing.”

“But look, they sell Lavender
scented Teddy Bears.”

“Oh-oh, there’s an Elephant in this room, look!
On the other hand, don’t look; let’s leave.”

“You act like you seen a dinosaur.”
“Not really! Just wanted to see
that movie playing titled,
WILD BLUE YONDER.”

Sometimes One just has to be SILLY

Can’t find my thinking cap! Don’t say it, I know what you’re thinking!

Tale Weaver – #299 – Over The Top – October 29th I took the challenge anyway!

OVER THE TOP

Looking way Over the top
Stooping under the bottom
Licking a sweet lollipop
Enjoying the cool Autumn

Having indeed a great day
After sleeping sound all night
Cut last blooms for a bouquet
Thinking of what now to write

Now reaching for my laptop
Designing away something —
Anything … Over the top

What the WORLD NEEDS NOW IS God’s ORDER, NOT a

NEW WORLD ORDER

The opposite of Hope is Despair! Today so many of us live on fear, which is one of the ploys of communism. What do we have today, FEAR! DESPAIR, no HOPE for the future. We tend to believe what we hear and what we hear is what the New World Order wants YOU to hear, which is why you already see so much censorship. Another tactic of communism.
Beginning with … “that’s not a ‘politically correct’ jingle.” Surrender of Freedom of speech!
That’s what comes with the New World Order. We live in a time where those who hate conservativeness; those who live with this hate. Hate another point of view, hate God, desire only a world without God.

Perhaps we are getting very close to sliding down that slippery slope but into what? The world, the Church both seem to be sliding together into the mud. Yes, we have God’s promise He will always be with us. However, He never intended for us to seek a modern religion that suits our lifestyle.
If you research while going back in time, those who seek God should know that when Jesus was on earth, He said when He returns would He find FAITH upon the earth. Speaking of the Church, He founded. “But yet the Son of man, when He cometh, (Second Coming) shall He find, think you, faith on earth?” Luke 18:8
Today, the Roman Catholic Church is in apostasy (Look at what the so-called pope is saying these days.) There is still a remnant, pockets of Traditional Catholics all over the world. Click to search

Ignore the communist tricks to imprison you; fear them NOT. Vote your conscience and, above all, PRAY for Godly ORDER!

Halloween or Hallo-erred

Don’t be scared get prepared.

I Believe, BECAUSE -

Scary stuff now the day for scary!
Scared paralyzed, momentarily.
Suspended is dangling, not moving.
The Ghost Word could it be removing!
Scribble the dribble — rewrite the right!
Politics, lunatic are today—
Many wishing it was yesterday!
Remember, don’t be scared get prepared.
The ghost word today is Hallo-erred!

Reflections to Enjoy

THE Photo Prompt

Tanka poetry inspired by a tranquil image of Trent P. McDonald as seen above.
Colleen suggests Synonyms for two words; move and make. I chose to use “create” for make and “drift” for move.

Magnetic water
Draws life from above —peaceful!
Create reflections
Holding captive souls as it
Obeys — drifting straits foretold.

Thrift Store Poetry

And so the challenge today is to write a poem using at least 5 of the following words and phrases: the road less traveledPlymouth Rocktissuetaxichalkboardbrown-paper package, and yellow brick road.

Paint Chip Poetry
A little story! Found! Treasures in Thrift stores.
It all begins when purchased; they become yours.
One of the best an old chalkboard with etched words
A recipe — Mix well a woman; one man.
Toss in a brown-paper package, not a pan!
Let’s all hope they never crack as Plymouth Rock.
If done correctly, brand new life should appear.
Months flew by; Birthdays approached with added tears.
Babies —now teens; tissue ruined parents cried.
Their little one’s decisions seemed too rattled.
Some taxied along on the road less traveled.
While remainders choice was the yellow brick road.
As years passed happily, they came to agree.
Shared food sitting under an old apple tree
Story ends on a happy note. Find! Now found!

Controversial Stream of Consciousness

Contentious and or Controversial

First off, if your guilty, see a traditional Catholic priest. There is no sin greater than the mercy of God. 

Watching a video on Youtube about what happened after Jesus was born; the Gospel of Matthew explains Herod becomes angry after the Magi did not return to him, and tell Herod what he wanted to know about the birth of the New King.

Thus saith the Lord: A voice was heard on high of lamentation, of mourning, and weeping, of Rachel weeping for her children, and refusing to be comforted for them, because they are not.”

After researching the word “Rachel” (above quote) “Thus saith the Lord: A voice was heard on high of lamentation, of mourning, and weeping, of Rachel weeping for her children, and refusing to be comforted for them, because they are not.”

BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT.

The video was vivid showing the murder of all these innocent little ones brought tears, and sorrow reminds me of today, the reprehensible sin of abortion.

I understood Rachel represented the women/mothers women in those parts mourning for their slaughtered infants.
How sad, know this, fellow Christians, God will never bless our nation while this heinous sin is legal.
Vote to defund abortion if you consider yourself a Christian, God, in the end, will give us all that we desire. His Will or ours. Your CHOICE!

We live, yet we die
A gift of will; why?
The gift from whom? God our voice

Expects us to pray
Asking for — claiming Wisdom
Angels there to guide
Always on our side
Calling all to His Kingdom

********************************

Every hour this male thrived on power
Although he lacked the brainpower
Some called him sleepy
That seemed quite creepy
Believed he wore a mask taking a shower
