Ah! Another Challenge, dVerse

The Day the Trees Spoke!

Here at WordPress with dVerse we are challenged to write a prose with 144 words only using the phrase “These memories were left here with the trees” — the line from the poem “How to Write a Poem in a Time of War.” dVerse calls it prose from poetry.

+++++++++++ 144 words below ++++++++++++

As the story is told, there existed one man, one woman, Adam and Eve. Living in a lush garden, without cares everything perfect; even the fiercest animals were gentle and kind.
God gave them one commandment, not to touch or eat of the tree standing there. Delightful to look at but deadly!
Curiosity lost; with the touching of the tree, fruit eaten; the downfall of the human race.
Not the end! But the beginning!
God in His mercy did not curse the trees; instead wrought our salvation, offering another chance to humanity by the use of a tree.
Listen now to the crackling of the leaves underfoot as they searched for one specific an exceptional tree, fashioned to form the Cross to hold the Divine Body of God. The trees in the forest spoke, and “These memories were left here with the trees” FOREVER!

“Where art thou” dVerse Poetry Forms

dVerse means poetry forms and this is my first attempt at what they are calling Dizain poetry.  Try it!  I did and it was a challenge to be sure.

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

This day leaves seemed contrived where art thou breeze?

Anchored tight clouds cling the sky blue setting 

Swiftly in a flicker of time, a wheeze

What! A storm approaching — quite upsetting

Another grim moment unforgetting

But, wait we see the brightness of the sun

Our God is teasing us, having some fun

Making sure we know that He is still there

Believe it or not, He won’t be outdone

World again still where art thou breeze — nowhere!

Ah! Another Challenge, true story

I CHALLENGE YOU — What is your PHILOSOPHY?

For the Traditional Catholic such as myself, we take Holy Week serious, as should all those who think of themselves as Christians, and everyone concerned about life beyond this one. Because of this being Holy Week I will not be posting very much, perhaps here and there depending on if and when inspirations come my way. Please continue to read this short post for a little story below.

Check this story out don’t CLICK OFF or run away; it is not religious; however, it can be. Last week I was indulging in one of those old classic black and white movies found on Youtube. One of the characters is speaking, while discussing with another mentions his philosophy, and I adopted it for my secular philosophy as well. However, when you think about it long enough, it flows from this world our earthly life to the spiritual where we find everlasting happiness.

Ready?

The character and the entire theme of this comical vintage movie is based on these words;

“I want to be happy, but I can’t be happy unless I make you happy too!”

I like that philosophy; I wonder if anyone would take the challenge and think about what your philosophy is.

Share it if you will here on WordPress.  Sort of a Share your World to borrow the fantastic words of others here on WordPress.

Lens-Artists, Photo Challenge

Lens-Artists photo challenge

The theme is delicious so we think of food.  I usually don’t photograph food, however, June of 2017 I was tempted and did capture an image of my favorite fruit, cherries while washing water drops appeared upon the cluster.  Later when I uploaded the image to my Corel Paint Shop Pro; wanting to experiment with an effect known as the Magnifying Lens this was the result.  Hope you find it interesting.

“Thou shalt take unto thee of all food that may be eaten, and thou shalt lay it up with thee: and it shall be food for thee and them.” [Genesis 6:21]

#FOWC, Word Prompts

No, No… Better Not!

52 WORDS 4 Sammiscribbles

When Truth scorned
ignored, denied or hidden;
impossible, never!

Truth is perpetual, forever!
Why then do many doubt?
God IS! He is Truth with a
capital letter.

To continue to deny the Supernatural
certainty is eternal death.

There is a God, the word to
Fear, the word to tremble to hear
Anathema!

#FOWC, Tanka Tuesday by Colleen Chesbro

The Devil Dances

Lately, the mainstream news is overwhelmingly blaring; “he said this and she said that” a seesaw of ups and downs.
Yet, I was again inspired to post due to the constant abuse of continued nothings.

Compose this SHADORMA. A form of poetry composed of six lines, no rhyme and 26 syllables total. My post here is an acceptance of Colleen Chesebro Challenge Tanka Poetry; her challenge is to use the synonyms for the words “Hobby and Play” look for the synonym underlined.

Also, Shadorma poetry is a syllabic poem with a meter of 3/5/3/3/7/5.

Hall of Shame
Mainstream ruse — passion
Pursuance
Not of Truth
Still, flirt with conspiracy 
The devil dances!
