Decima Poem: Finding Peace in Nature’s Quietness

Glowing flame crowns the silent trees
as the evening sun sits on
the far and distant horizon.
Tis a simple and quiet scene
to gaze upon serenity.
Such soothing gentleness imparts
a hidden smile touching each heart
of all those who seek to witness
the hushed splendor of nature’s rest;
peace found in its’ tranquility.

 

I just took the challenge of writing my first decima poem in which I must use the word “smile” in one of the “c” lines.  The poem is ten lines with the following rhyming pattern: abbaaccddc. Each line is 8 syllables. If you want to give this challenge try, here is the link to learn all about it:

Born with PURPOSE

Born to:
Please and enjoy being with God: to believe, honor, worship, and love
him daily for God loved us first.
Understand God: to grow in faith by knowing him more and more
with each new passing day.
Receive Jesus, His Son, as Lord and Savior who rescues us from our
sins and saves us from eternal death.
Perfect relationship with God while He continuously sculps and
reshapes us as his new creation.
Obey God’s good, right, and perfect commands as he leads our
lives in a new and meaningful direction.
Serve others by teaching, leading, loving, caring, and helping others
to also believe in him.
Everlasting life in glorious heaven with Jesus, our families and
friends to live in love, peace, and joy forever and ever.

Pantoum: While Walking through the Forestland

While walking through the forestland
beneath the boughs of leafy green,
wading amidst the sea of swaying grass
as sweet carols unseen bluebirds sing.
Beneath the boughs of leafy green
while the river nearby gently flows,
as sweet carols unseen bluebirds sing
high above the lush, rolling meadow.
As the river nearby gently flows,
the sky above shone a sapphire hue
high above the lush rolling meadow;
sparkling like a crystal jewel.
The sky above shone a sapphire hue
under the sun’s ever vibrant gaze;
sparkling like a crystal jewel
as towering pines offer comfort and shade.
Under the sun’s ever vibrant gaze
wading through the sea of swaying grass
as towering pines offer comfort and shade
while walking through the forestland.

HAPPY EASTER DAY

 

Heaven sent gift of love and hope;

Ascension of Jesus, Savior and Lord.

Perfect and holy; he knew no sin;

Punishment he suffered for all believing in Him.

Yesterday’s and today’s offenses are forgiven;

Eternal salvation now awaits in heaven.

After that long night when he hung on the cross;

Suffering in silence, our Lord Jesus.

Tomb is opened as the stoned is rolled away;

Early morning celebration, oh Happy Easter Day!

Resurrected, Jesus is alive; in heaven, in my

heart and always at my side.

HAPPY EASTER

Becky’s Pantoum: Sunlight on the Horizon

As sunlight glistens on the horizon,
while the shield of darkness quietly fades,
of powder blue the sky softly lightens
turning the dawn into glorious new day.
While the shield of darkness quietly fades,
as the stars one by one disappear,
turning the dawn into a glorious new day
casting a ray of hope upon the earth.
As the stars one by one disappear
into the dispersing cloak of night
casting a ray of hope upon the earth
spanning from early morn to eve’s twilight.
Into the dispersing cloak of night,
as the moon emits a pale and ghostly glow
spanning from early morn to eve’s twilight
barely visible in a shimmering shadow.
As the moon emits a pale and ghostly glow,
of powder blue the sky softly lightens,
barely visible in a shimmering shadow
as sunlight glistens on the horizon.

The Lord God is my SHELTER

He is my:

Safe haven when I am afraid.

Help when I am in trouble or in need.

Ever present friend when I feel all alone.

Loving Father who keeps continual watch over me.

Trusted Lord and Savior who never forgets those who love Him.

Everlasting Hope for an eternally secured future.

Refuge of rest in the wake of life’s fiercest storms.

He is my everlasting Lord who never changes,

never fails, and his good and purposeful plans

will endure and prevail.

And calms my fears.

And wipes away my tears.

He’s near me in the sunshine;

He’s still there in the moonlight.

And even when there’s no light,

God’s always near.

and keeps watch over me.

Verse 3:

Because he loves me so,

He’ll never let me go.

And sing with all my heart.

 Yes, I’ll praise his name;

He’s always near

White daisies sway in

the field; vision sweet touches

the faint heart with peace.
