Well-timed Silence

.

“Well-timed

silence

hath more

eloquence

than speech.”

.

~ Martin Farquhar Tupper

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)    classic: each word only one syllable

.

calm

no noise

a soft hush

a place to sit

still

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

God speaks in silence

meditate

listen to His word

.

Poem:

.

another lost moment in time
my ego became misplaced in the rhyme
a pregnant pause is not a well timed silence
wise are those who use God for guidance

why worry, most things forgotten don’t matter
if necessary God will put it on your platter
remember to sort your wants from your needs
even mustard comes from the smallest seeds

time spent wisely is usually with others
problems solved by a band of brothers
most important is to show up when promised
usually remembered when one is honest

today, take the time to do something nice
always done when following your own advice

Heal The Imagination

.

“[Fiction and poetry]

are medicines,

they’re doses, and they

heal the rupture

that reality makes

on the imagination.”

.

― Jeanette Winterson

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

trash

used up

no longer valid

yet another man’s treasure

antiques

.

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)

.

healthy yet not well

self diagnosing the ills

hypochondriac

.

Poem:

.

grace, free gifts from above
a true measure of God’s love
blessings for those who have gratitude
spirits which are daily renewed

faith, the graces are not for just a few
with heart wide open they are there for you
a gift of salvation by the grace of God
forgiven, though every soul is flawed

benefits received that grow when shared
pardons openly offered by God declared
we are all brothers from another mother
the will of God we need to discover

use the talents with which you have been graced
there is a reason why in this world you have been placed
