Resident Fool

Fool resides in head

Operating hair-trigger

Verbal weaponry

Mere thoughts fatal ~ enemy’s

Taunts leave soul drowning in blood

Nothing But the Blood

Assiduous task

Soul daily scrubbed, scoured, polished

‘Damn spot’, sin remains

Heart’s will, efforts can’t erase

Only Savior’s blood can cleanse

Time’s Silvered Blur

For Open Link Night at dVerse Poets Pub ~ Click the link at end of post to learn more and join the othersšŸ˜Š

Time’s hands run circles

Etching stories on my face

Convert, squaring rows:

Months’ pages racing past…years

Too swift gone to capture glimpse

~

Aged vision blurs glass

Poet’s rain…words ripple, pool ~

Relentless, seek healed

Quietness of soul at dusk

Where blessed-rest at last is met

Faith’s Not Optional

(my faith wall)

ā™„ā€ ā™„

Flexibility wearies

Compromises flatten joy

Juggling new variables…

Constant change strains soul

Faith’s not optional

Soul’s Ache

Reconnoiter day

Anxious dread tens to ambush

Soul’s ache pleads for ease

By Turn of Phrase

By tone, turn of phrase

Message is embroidered, dyed

Affecting spirit

Words stitched with threads of life, death

Destroy or uplift the soul
