Once upon a time

The Challenge create a poem from paint chips!

Paint Chips for poetry

 

 

Once upon a time, time was unknown.
Father God created from His Throne!
God must love the purple-colored tones!

From the kingly royal purple robes
Jacaranda trees over the globe.
Science of ultraviolet probes

The deep purple of the blackberry
The song of the purple canary
Color purple quite legendary.

Once upon a time, obedience was known!

Sea Serpents and Mermaids

Paint Chip Poetry the rage; will you take the dare? Clickhere!

 

When I was little, I had a potpourri of Old Leather boots, past on to me by my big sister. As time went on, her euphoria was all about the color yellow! As in a Turmeric flower, bright yellow pennies, even the bright yellow of the Lazy Lizard.
How silly she is, me, I’ll stick with my dreams of Sea Serpents and Mermaids.

Hand me down treasure
Precious keepsake fun to take
Eyeing her new stuff

Take the Challenge, I Did!

I love this challenge, and for some strange reason today I wanted to write about myself, a confession.

Prompt words from Paint Chip resulted in the Haibun with Haiku

Somehow I was inspired to compose about my journey of Faith!
Most think the Church has changed with the recent Modern Popes, but in truth, it didn’t change at all, it just became smaller. Luke 18:8
“I say to you that he will quickly revenge them. But yet the Son of man, when he cometh, shall he find, think you, Faith on earth?”

↓ My LONG LOST Faith ↓

After a few moments, asking for inspiration, a BRIGHT IDEA was wrought.
Faith was lost in the past, and like a HERMIT CRAB, I was living in a shell.
Slowly in the early ’70s, I found myself growing warmer to hot like the TROPICS. Realizing if there was a God, my choices were not His.

Something was amiss! I desired the sweet flesh of the Blessed Sacrament, but instead, it was only bread. The Catholic Church changed, I thought! I began to pray.
I yearned to be cleansed; where was this fountain where the Water Lily/LOTUS waited for me? Somewhere I knew for His promise was forever. Seek, and you shall find, like BABY’S BREATH, a beginning again; I found the POMEGRANATE, the Sweet Flesh, red Blood of He who died for me many seeds for all to see, the Church still existed. Like a PEACOCK with its many eyes, God does see our deeds, He cares!

About Tradition
Gates of Hell will not prevail.
Seek, and you shall find!

A Paint Chip Haibun

Look and See Beautiful PAINT CHIPS, let’s all write a poem.

A Haibun with Haiku

I wonder from all the different types
of Hydrangea, my grandma’s hydrangeas
are best. Look, see her lime hydrangea
like a key lime pie, the smell. A fragrance so
sweet, mystical, not overpowering.
Today, however, no lime pie. Let’s settle
for a banana split. Our gratitude for that
will be overpowering for sure.  After all, it

runs in the family!

From heaven above
Flowers falling down to earth
Thank you for the scent

Working my Things to do List

Get out your thinking caps and join the chips 

 

 

Oh! Put a spotlight; “things-to-do list.”
Fog dims my view things I might have missed.
Start arranging what is essential.
This job, I hope, to be quite simple.

Need a vivid imagination —
A pyramid, a broad foundation.
Plus fragrant tangled vines of Jasmine
Many hours of work begins, Amen

A menu from bottom to the top
Pull to and fro as bubble gum pops
Back again forward turning to twist
Singing and dancing so go this list.

A well-done job finishing at last
Once and for all look back to the past.
Done! Now as visiting my hometown                             
Finally satisfied I sit down.

Look and see that same old tired scarecrow.
Still standing in the sand. Oh, oh, oh!

Paint Chip Poetry, a Haibun of Inspiration

 

Poetry?  Perhaps a Haibun with Haiku!

What inspires? Listen carefully as the song, America the Beautiful, inspired by purple mountain majesties. Our imagination, too, is kindling for a vision. Pray for a monsoon of grace, an epiphany, imagine drinking hot cocoa while pondering the unknown. So much still to discover, as Adam and Eve found the fig leaf, you to can find. Something is there waiting for you so away with the fake rubber ducky, away with the cheese puffs, say hello to wine and sweet dessert, time to explore your mind, and unearth your hidden talent.

Good-bye to ducky
Discover wine and dining
Dig up your talent

SEEK AND YOU SHALL FIND!

I love this challenge, Paint Chip poetry, the chips are seen below:

If you haven’t tried it yet, it’s fun and always a healthy dare; click here for the PROMPT.

My Poem below titled SEEK AND YOU SHALL FIND

While searching, wash the SAWDUST from your eyes
Turn away from those ever ENDLESS DUNES
While hunting those desired FRIENDS FOREVER!
Seek high and low valued FOREVER FRIENDS.

Finely finding that APPLE OF YOUR EYE
Friends fitting tightly; a BALLET SLIPPER
With bonds overgrowing as JACK’s BEANSTALK!
Not flourishing cold as a KITTENS NOSE!

Remember friends who take you off from God
Turn away from those ever ENDLESS DUNES.
STOP! Change direction; exit that SCHOOL BUS
While searching — wash the SAWDUST from your eyes!

Worth waiting for in POETRY

Let’s have a look-see at the paint chips because its time to paint,  our CHIPS can be viewed below.

       *************

 

Pining away thoughts of future
Reflection through a looking glass.
The other side of life appeared.

Seeing Heaven a perfect place
Worth waiting for STOP return, don’t
Look back— forget Disco fever!

Seek toward that field of poppies
A nursery, tulips in spring
Follow the scent of sweet Iris.

How it Will End— Depends on ME!

Linked to dVerse Open Link

Here we are again; time to paint a little, our paint chips can be viewed below.

This is How it will End

The Journey, we are within —
Yesterday, like the first kiss
never again!

Bygone the golden hour of the past —
Wasted? Melted as an ice cap
Nevermore!

Will eternity be sipping amethyst wine
and camomile tea relaxing on soft clouds
or

Dodging hot pink, habanero flames
Continually seeking to devour!

How it will end depends on me!   

Eternity

A Little Advice on True Love

What a Challenge this time for me, it was indeed!  

A Little Bit of Advice about True Love

 

True Love is not ever-changing as an inchworm
After the fire, is a hot potato — affirmed

To love is to serve, as a sunflower serves God
Testing love by a mistletoe — certainly odd

Grapefruits quite sour, as well as wild mushroom, are chance
When he’s willing to serve you, its time for romance
