How Would I Know!

For this week’s Lucky Dip, says she reached into her mystery bag and pulled out a Didactic Poem – What! You say what is that? Didactic Poetry is a form of poetry intended for instruction such as for knowledge or to teach.

My attempt is seen below; I wrote it with five-syllable ease-to-flow lines. Titled; FAITH

Do you know — I do!
How does God answer?
How do I know this
His Church tells me so!

Through His suffering
Merits fill the brim
Treasury the Church
His Church —always true.

Almighty Supreme
Great God could have winked!
To save us all —Yet!
Would you have cared? — No!

His torture —The Price.
His wealth — eternal.
Waits for you to draw
From His treasury!

A Divine merit
Never-ending, FREE!
His merits circling
Over and beyond!

His worth forever.
Whirls the world; passion
Infinite!  Complete
Please ask to receive.


Word Prompt is “GREAT”

Same Difference

Same Same But Different

Your ‘Same Same But Different’ task is to take the five challenge words and NOT use them in your writing. That’s right; you need to dig out your thesaurus and find a synonym for each word instead.

Your words are:

  1. For the word “see” I used the synonym notice
  2. For “blue” I used the synonym moody
  3. “soft” synonym foolish
  4. “kind” = style
  5. “weak” = quiet

Your writing form is either poetry or prose.

I wonder how and have you noticed?

The different personalities; we all have our own style!

Some of us are moody others foolish!

I better be quiet before I give myself away!

Why I am a TRADITIONAL CATHOLIC!

Vatican II, a council, ALTERED the ALTAR within the Church building.
I’LL be a fallen away laity when walking down their AISLE, rather live on an ISLE alone with my rosary in hand.
