Pentimento

I sometimes think I change my mind
To fit prevailing wind.
It only matters that I find
Amidst these changes I was kind.
If not, well, then I’ve sinned.


Text: Linked to dVerse Poetics. Amaya is hosting with the theme “pentimento”.

Photo: “Morning Rays of Light” that I am linking to Frank Jansen’s Tuesday Photo Challenge since this sunrise looks “exotic” to me which is the theme this week.

News: Yesterday I joined a local poetry group, Poets and Patrons.  They host annual poetry contests and the Helen Schaible International Shakespearean Petrarchan Sonnet Contest.

Scarier Than Halloween

There are horrors that let themselves in
When the gambles I trusted won’t win.
Is God still on my side
As my crash goes to hide
In my heart like a well-deserved sin?

Written for the Limerick Challenge Week 44: Horror.
