Found Poetry, I found it!

This week because it’s the beginning of a new month!

Colleen Chesebro says, “This challenge is NOW a true poet’s choice! Use any poetry form that you’d like including free-style or prose poetry. If your form is something new, teach us how to write it. Have fun!

She suggested several forms, take a look here, CLICK!

I wanted to try as she suggested FOUND POETRY with there being several different methods, I choose the BLACK OUT! Using the Lord’s Prayer also know as The Our Father.

A blackout poem begins with an existing text, usually a newspaper. Using a heavy black marker, the writer blots out most of the page. The remaining words are not moved or rearranged. Fixed in place, they float in a sea of darkness. The contrast of black and white stirs thoughts of censorship and secrecy. What’s hiding behind the headlines of our daily paper? What does the highlighted text reveal about politics and world events?

The idea of redacting words to create a new work goes back centuries, but the process became trendy when writer and artist Austin Kleon posted newspaper blackout poems online and then published his book and companion blog, Newspaper Blackout.

Evocative and dramatic, blackout poems retain the original typography and word placement. Some artists add graphic designs, while others let the stark words stand on their own.

EXCITEMENT!

The theme of today EXCITEMENT its at AlwaysWright.

My little story may not be appreciated but still it is my story just the same!

After really thinking of all the events in my life, of which many were quite exciting. The one that, even today, gives me excitement the average person might not relate to is the day I found the Traditional Latin Mass.
After being led into through Vatican II, a man-centered service and not knowing where to turn, except to pray! Praying I did, finally after a long time, several years, in fact! Quite miraculously, I found Traditional Catholic Latin Chapel, the feeling was I was lost, but now I came home! It was and IS VERY EXCITING.

+++

“Nun. Thy prophets have seen false and foolish things for thee: and they have not laid open thy iniquity, to excite thee to penance: but they have seen for thee false revelations and banishments.”
[Lamentations 2:14]

Breaking News happening concerning the Traditional Latin Mass

Francis has dropped a bombshell on the traditional Catholic community with his latest declaration in “Traditionis Custodes” severely restricting the celebration of the traditional Latin Mass (also known as the “extraordinary form”)

That news too is exciting to me, because we may be seeing the Second Coming of Christ soon, NOTICE I said MAY BE, what do I know! Not much but hoping!

Anyone for images of Landscapes and/or Fields

CBWC

Anytime I want to find a place for great pictures I just walk around the acres of land near and through Mount St. Michael, a Traditional Catholic parish, here in Spokane.

Turkeys run wild all around the Mount, here is a capture I took with their family and friends.

Hey! Conservatives, don’t let the turkeys get you down! (the devil made me say that!)

Next my landscape, also within the park-like grounds of Mount St. Michael, inviting all to browse the mysterious path to who knows what is beyond the gateway!

Don’t stop yet, see below: While I was there I also found this odd, bumpy humpy tree near the gym, at Mount St. Michael, I squared it off for the TreeSquare challenge running here on WordPress.

Did Someone say BLUE?

Every time I hear the word BLUEhttps://traveltalk.me.uk/2021/07/04/life-in-colour-26/, I remember this childhood prayer I learned in school.

Lovely Lady dressed in blue ——-
Teach me how to pray!
God was just your little boy,
Tell me what to say!

Did you lift Him up, sometimes,
Gently on your knee?
Did you sing to Him the way
Mother does to me?

Did you hold His hand at night?
Did you ever try
Telling stories of the world?
O! And did He cry?

Do you really think He cares
If I tell Him things ——-
Little things that happen? And
Do the Angels WINGS

Make a noise? And can He hear
Me if I speak low?
Does He understand me now?
Tell me ——-for you know.

Lovely Lady dressed in blue ——-
Teach me how to pray!
God was just your little boy,
And you know the way.

THREE DAYS OF DARKNESS

Sunday prompt today is “COLLEAGUE.” My little story can be read below as fiction based on prophesy. Only Time will Tell!

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*

However, most have heard of “make-believe,” now we live in an era of “fake believe.” One day not so long ago, in what is now the world of “fake-believe,” lived an evil man who wanted to play God. He had many colleagues with the same agenda.


He started to believe he was a god when he dabbled with the sun.


The only One and True God allowed this evil person leeway because the culture became reversed. Bad was expected, and good was considered outdated.


God, too, can reverse, and the moon with the sun suddenly stopped giving light. For three days and nights, the earth suffered darkness.


Those on earth who honored God were protected in their homes, while those who cheered the new culture discovered that God would never be mocked.

A Haibun of Perpetual Flowers with Haiku

A Halo!

A Favorite white rose, living now, a flower!
Combine that thought with mystery of today; hidden, a secret of the rosary!  The Coronation!
Imagine the Mother of God forever crowned as Queen; no! Not ...
 a crown made with yellow gold; we call precious metal.  Think —a sweet fragrance saturating the air with several white vivid roses all aglow and strung together in the form of a crown — a crown of perpetual flowers that will never die.  

Glory of a rose
Enduring everlasting
A Crown for our Queen
God’s Masterpiece

My Parade of Poems — Vintage Baltimore Catechism

My parade of poems is based and inspired by The Baltimore Catechism. Catholics born before the Modern changes in the Vatican (approx. 1960) will remember learning their catechism from these text books.

One day not very long ago, (last week) I was thinking of the Haiku, a form of poetry that is popular here on WordPress and fun to write. Thinking of a theme, why not The Baltimore Catechism!

I thank dVerse along with other experts as Tanks Tuesday with Colleen for introducing several forms of poetry to me, now; in my advanced senior years. Not sure if she will approve an entire parade of Haiku’s or are they Senryu forms? Whatever! But as I said, inspired by the Baltimore Catechism … here is my parade.

Ta Da ♫
Haiku number 1
***
Created by God
Purpose to Know, Love, and Serve
Eternity Waits

Haiku number 2
***
Trinity One God
Creation — Angels their fall
Sin entered the world

Haiku number 3 
***
Forbidden by God
Willfully crime against Him
Beg daily prayer 

Number 4  
***
Help!  Saviour needed
Jesus born — dies to save us
Grace a gift from God

Number 5  
***
Faith, Hope, Charity
Virtues Gifts ours to receive
Third Person awaits

Number 6
***
Peace of soul to win
Treasures realized are yours
Mission accomplished

Number 7
***
Be smart do your part
All you have to do is ask
Think Pascal's wager

Pascal’s Wager “#Awakening”

Reading below might be an AWAKENING for some and not for others.
Awakening the prompt word for Ragtag Daily Prompt #RDP

Speaking of The Christian God… Question: “What is Pascal’s Wager?”

According to Pascal, the wise thing to do is live your life as if God exists because such a life has everything to gain and nothing to lose. If we live as though God exists, we have attained heaven. If He doesn’t exist, we have lost nothing. If, on the other hand, we live as though God does not exist and He does exist, we have gained hell and punishment and have lost heaven and bliss.

Pascal thinks it an intellectual blunder to wager on that there is no God. At least mankind should search for the truth. I know not whence I came or whither I go. I only know that on quitting this world, I shall fall forever either into nothingness or … “into the hands of an angry God.” Heb 10:31.

(A) There is a purpose in life (God made us for life with him), or (B) that there is not.

Under one guise or another, human selfishness always urges man to stake everything on the idea there isn’t God. Pascal tries to show that it is far more reasonable – even from the viewpoint of self-interest – to stake all on there is God. If you bet everything on B and A is the truth, you lose an eternal good. But if you stake all on A and B is the truth, you win.

Why I Love the Catholic Faith #WQWWC

I decided to participate in a challenge with the tag of #WQWWC; mainly the theme is FAITH!

If you look at my blog is is about my faith, the TRADITIONAL Catholic Faith, not the Modernism you see in your neighbor catholic churches. There is a difference read Second Thessalonians Chap. 2 ” Let no man deceive you by any means, for unless there come an apostasy.” (From said Faith!)

Famous quotes about 'Catholic Faith' - Sualci Quotes 2019
Matthew 10:22

Because the world hates Catholics!

“And you shall be hated by all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall persevere unto the end, he shall be saved.”
