And so the challenge today is to write a poem using at least 5 of the following words and phrases: the road less traveled, Plymouth Rock, tissue, taxi, chalkboard, brown-paper package, and yellow brick road.
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!
Down by the river I heard these politicians Blah blah who listened?
This week, we are to write the haikai poem of our choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that states or alludes to either Fall foliage or goose (kari)–or both, if we feel so inclined! Challenge Here
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!
After studying Colleens recommended links and Syllable counter; it was decided to try the Alouette form of poetry. My first attempt at this form of poetry that consists of two or more stanzas of 6 lines or more. Syllabic: 5/5/7/5/5/7 — Rhyme Scheme: aabccb
We live, yet we die A gift of will; why? The gift from whom? God our voice He came — gave us time Life — our turn to shine Death He gives again our choice!
Helps us on our way Expects us to pray Asking for — claiming Wisdom Angels there to guide Always on our side Calling all to His Kingdom
