Walked on a path and
I heard distinctive chirps of
A red-winged blackbird.
Holding tight to reins of
Control; found I must let go
While on quest of hope.
I have just attempted yet another haiku challenge from Ronovan Writes blog using the words “rein” and “quest”. I am enjoying the challenge of putting different and even opposite words in such a short poem. If you like challenges and haiku’s then I invite you to also accept Ronovan’s latest challenge at this link: https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/category/haiku-prompt-challenge/
Sun shimmering light brightens the crystal blue sky
Purple lilac blossoms emitting their fragrant perfume.
Rain fed grass glistens like sparkling green Depression glass.
Ivy plants and trees sway ever so softly in the breeze.
Nesting robins call and sing forming a musical chanting ring.
Gentle warmth surrounds me like a soft cloak of perfect peace.
Dandelions dot the emerald lawns displaying their lemon hue at morning’s dawn.
A quiet walk along the tranquil street proves to be a pleasant journey.
Yielding my still heart and mind to the presence of God; holy and divine.
The sky is gray and pouty
Threatening to weep and rain.
Hidden from sight
Is the sun’s orbed light
As raindrops fall again.
And flashes of lightning wonder
Peal across the darkened sky
Streaking crooked paths
Against the cloudy mass
In electric zigzag light.
Arching over the dewy green meadow
After a long and stormy night.
Inspiring chirps of gladness and hope
across the forested slopes
Beneath the blue crystal sky.
As I quietly pause to pray,
I asked Jesus to be with me today.
For at the start of each morning
I am preparing for a new day’s journey.
What each day has in store
Is only known by the Lord.
Must keep on trusting him
To lead me safely home each evening.
Where I can sit and be at rest;
With gladness and peace I am blessed
As I know by faith God is still with me;
Holding and keeping me for eternity.
