exquisite night for
a walk through the neighborhood
new summer old goals
I wrote this for #haikuchallenge on Twitter. I wrote it in Spring, but I am posting it on the first day of Summer. Do you have any old or new goals for the summer?
call him early
or call me incompetent
we were in God’s hands
I have been reluctant to share this one because I am not sure what to write with it. I guess since I believe 3 line poems are powerful enough to stand on their own, you don’t need an explanation. I will say that my baby boy was born at 37 weeks, and was just days past being “premature.” Statistics say this is why he is slightly asthmatic.
Dear Lord 1
Dear Lord ease this pain
Don’t leave me to be slain
I need you Lord, I need you now
Doctors, I need you anyhow
Forget the meds, forget the scripts
Please keep me from the crypts
I know you can, I know you will
Slowly I swallow this pill
I find it easier to get through the week if I pray, read The Bible, read quotes and posts from other Christians, and do a devotion in the morning.
What spiritual habits help you get through the week?
“Acrostic Fridays” are now going to be “Wandering Wednesdays”.
I will now be posting on Wednesdays instead of Fridays. While I plan to post a lot of my religious poems, I will post others that really don’t have a category. I have quite a few poems that are short and irregular and have been rejected more than once- they are going to be making their way onto this blog.

“Wandering Wednesday” will not have its own category, each poem will be put into the appropriate existing category.
Makings of a Story
Run your hand, down my spine
Feel the break, in the line
Feel the scar, see the glare
Be disgusted, I don’t care
Know the story, know the truth
Something sprang, from this root
It was not by chance, it was not mistake
For a reason I do ache
Twisted in fashion, I am broke
Where there is fire, there is smoke
A story of love I have to tell
With pride, my heart does swell
He loves me and made me so
With a story I now go
What do you think? Give me some feedback! 🙂
My Favorite Doctor
Can you see me today?
Here’s my Insurance card.
I am at a 9, please help!
Right there, that’s the sorest.
Over, I flip to my back.
Pop, my vertebrae move.
Right side is next.
Alright, I am feeling better.
Can I see you next week?
Thanks so much!
Other doctors didn’t help me.
Relief is so sweet.
Have you ever tried to write an Acrostic poem?
What kinds of poetry have you written?
my bones call to me
As winter approaches, I know many of you actually “feel” it. And not in a “I’m so spiritual and in tune with nature” way either. Your joints are stiffening and your bones are cracking and hurting. I feel for you, I have back problems myself. I do not have arthritis, and I cannot feel it when the pressure or temperature drops, but I know some of you can. Here is a poem written about those feelings.
Another Day in the School of Pain
I wish my body didn’t fail so often
I wish I could get through the day
Without sharp twinges in my back
With no reminder of my imperfections
The headaches make it hard to concentrate
The pain coursing down my spinal cord
Makes me doubly annoyed at everything
It is hard to find joy on days like this
Accommodate the pain and learn
As our learning time here is short
There are so many lessons in The Pain
This is what God is trying to tell us
Like it or not mountains crumble down
Death is another lesson to be learned
Mind numbing pain teaches us to be grateful
For we are becoming better in mind
If not in body
