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

God Is Awake

.

“Have courage for the

great sorrows of life and

patience for the small ones;

and when you have laboriously

accomplished your daily task,

go to sleep in peace.

God is awake.”

.

~ Victor Hugo

finished

finally done

was completely over

t’s crossed, I’s dotted

accomplished

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)

.

the harvest complete

and ready for Thanksgiving

fall foliage on fire

Poem:

.

whatever did I do
I thought I was being nice to you
maybe you didn’t hear me right
I’m supposed to be your white knight

was it my tone of voice or the words I used
for whatever reason I am confused
please tell me what am I supposed to do
I will do anything that I must go through

don’t know what I did so I can’t say that I’m sorry
I’m chasing big game emotions like I was on a safari
to play your guessing game I am requesting a hint
maybe it’s something that rhymes with peppermint

could be that I forgot to take out the trash
we needed milk, I forgot to leave you the cash
did I strand the kids at the soccer field
I quit, too many landmines on this battlefield

she confessed there was no reason for her blowup
for her the best part was to kiss and make up
