Your Epiphany Don’t Miss It!

Below please read my very first Sonnet poem composed and response to dVerse Poets. The beginning of a New Year and an opening of dVerse Poets who will be creating a new book with samples of poetry in the form of prompts to bloggers. My Sonnet Rhyme scheme:
ABAB // CDCD // EFEF // GG

An Epiphany every day to share
something to live for — a rewarding gain.
Personal lightning bolts, some call prayer!
Very easy for your genius to train.

Your friend — SILENCE helps complete the design,
your enemy — unwanted DISTRACTION.
Ability to relax perfect sign,
unwind; now ebb, reach to satisfaction.

Now place yourself in the presence of God!
Listen gingerly that song of quiet,
refusing to become a lightning rod.
Grow near supernatural reliant.

Awaiting peace of soul we hunger for
Since the Voice of God, Silence, not ignored.

Yuletide
Celebrate
Christ is present —
Decorate your tree
The Herald of angels
Signal the holiday signs;
Santa, mistletoe, elves, raindeers —
Everyone here tastes of our pudding
Gifts in your stocking because of Christmas

We Met on Christmas Day—1957

My Christmas Gift from God!

Married … 1961

Now he is gone, his name was Dennis!

A MEMORY afraid to forget

Some die soft and others die-hard.
You left me with a heart scarred.
His Will was to call you home
His Will left me all alone.
Your words to me were bravely spoken
Today I understand the words foretoken.
“It’s Gods Will,” you said over and over.
“Please lend me a prayer,” and moreover;
“What did our priest just say to me?”
Words I just couldn’t foresee.
“Our children will now care for you,”
He knew they would follow through.
Now that it’s been six long years
What I do best are shedding tears.

Bells, bells and more bells

#SoCS Dec. 8/18 … anything musical.

I must confess I just can’t keep rule number 1 which states (Your post must be a stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.)  Especially this one below:  Editing and planning was a must! I am still a beginner at poetry, but I love it and love the challenges to create.

 

 

Bells
Songful
Some jingle
Others tinkle
Tintinnabulum
School bells calling our youth
Winter sleigh bells mirror joy
Sorrow someone is going home
The most loved Church bell ringing —listen
Watch it brings out the twinkle of God’s Eyes!
