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

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
Maybe it’s the world’s mode these days; can’t help to think of a Catholic popular prophecy in which the stage is being set right now! My opinion only, of course!

Presenting the Paint Chips, please join in with your creative writing.

Attach to God or detached? Winds roll us as tumbleweeds. Where O’where rosary beads? Never late, long as we breathe.
Tongue-tied fear viewing sunsets! Green flashes for all to see. When it’s over, sun to rise. A world becomes very wise.
Now to know the Master’s sign. Every knee bends at His name. The world; a canvas so blank We have God’s mercy to thank.
