The Face Of God

.

“To love

another person

is to see the

face of God.”

.

~ Victor Hugo

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

face

look to

fight to win

see what is ahead

confront

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

.

love is in the air

the atmosphere is pleasing

beautiful people

a gleeful wedding party

everyone has the feeling

.

Poem:

.

every thought is a prayer
a question or an answer to declare
no need to kneel beside the bed
close the eyes and clear the head

gratitude must be a part of the morning prayer
identifying, trying not to compare
challenging a faith that comes and goes
a soul that doubts what others propose

my whole life has been a wish and a prayer
the outcome, I deem, has been unfair
in God’s time all prayers are answered
like wildflowers his blessings scattered

it is alright to borrow someone else’s prayer
knowing that a prayer will go everywhere
some may receive its benefits, some may not
what is nice is that you gave them a thought

be careful what you pray for,
you might just get it

Obvious

“Contemporary poets

got so obscure

that poetry kind of

fell out of favor. ”

~ Paul Ruffin

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

coy

subtle hints

are you thinking

tell it like it

is

Haiku:

.

natures abundance

perpetual emotion

moving all senses

Poem:

.

a mask carved from stone
he was always so very, very serious
a smile would probably crack his face
his demeanor posed deleterious

most believed he had no heart
his vocabulary consisted of grunts and groans
but under it all his mother knew
he had a good heart and strong bones

who knows what is behind God’s grand design
who among us is qualified to judge another’s character
can anyone determine the strength of that man’s spine
only God knows who is prey and who is predator

once upon a certain Saturday all hell broke loose
recalcitrant unleashed a hailstorm of destruction
the stone face frowned and knew he had no excuse
he reacted as taught by his military instruction

credited with saving many, a hero posthumously
never let a face judge a heart that lives generously
