2019

Filled to overflowing;
Still not full enough -
Stones protrude. With water
Walk away what’s rough.

Linked to K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge with the theme of 2019 and to Trent P. McDonald’s The Weekly Smile. I’m posting a couple of photos from this past year that made me smile. Happy New Year tomorrow night.

The poem is based on the difference between being filled and being full as described by David Pawson.

Christmas Light

Christmas light,
Starry night,
Winter dazzling
Angel bright.

Also linked to Trent P. McDonald’s The Weekly Smile. It is nearly Christmas. Although there has been waiting and perhaps much else, what’s there not to smile about?

Christmas Gift

Reality is wonderful,
Terrifying, too.
What seems so weak, so powerful,
Is filling all of you.

New World

Gehenna is a garbage dump
From where those there could see
Heaven, new Jerusalem,
Above, majestically.

I saw it on the sidewalk,
A rusting, one-edge blade.
I picked it up and wrapped it up
And threw the blade away.

Color

Happiness will help one glow.
Happiness may not come though
One does what one thinks one should do
As colors blend with others new
Cycling through the ever same
Rebuked, reformed then round again.
Winter’s whiteness stays a while
Awaiting one more happy smile.

Also linked to dVerse Quadrille. Lillian is hosting with the word “glow”.

It is also linked to Trent P. McDonald’s The Weekly Smile. This past week the answers to a couple of questions on Quora suddenly made sense to me. There is nothing like understanding something (finally) to make me smile.

Cloudy

The sun comes rising from the sea,
A sometimes cloudy mystery
And sometimes not. It feels OK
To sit near terns who watch with me.

Echo

Autumn echoes summer.
It echoes winter too.
May I echo only good
In what I choose to do.

Linked to dVerse Poetics. Merril hosts with the theme “echo”. I hope this echoes the prompt.
