Pondering The Poetic Heart

Pondering the Poetic Heart is a place to guide our spirits into place of contemplative rest. As a poet, I long to encourage you to find hope and healing through the process of reflecting on God, love, life, and all things that capture the spirit through the written word.

In the month of November, I will lead us through a time of thanksgiving through my 30 Days of Thanksgiving Poems. In December we will ring the bells of Christmas. There will also be other times through the year when we will celebrate love, just for fun poetry, and more. I pray this will be a place of loving contentment for all of us.

Troubled But Thankful

Troubled But Thankful

Some days are enormously sad
so much heartache in our world
thankfulness becomes difficult
there seems to be no words.
Just tears upon our pillows
as we silently ponder anew
what it must have been like
so long ago to be You.

Just Passing By

Just Passing By

Every day between 10 and 2
on the nicer of weather days mind you
he sits on a wall by the road
greeting each car passing by
with a simple wave of hello.

GOODBYE

GOODBYE

Goodbye.
Goodbye fear.
Goodbye lonely.
Goodbye anxiety.
Goodbye pain.
Goodbye darkness.

Little Bitty Seed

Little Bitty Seed

I’m just a little seed
nothing much right now
but I have huge dreams
of what I want to be.

I was planted in the backyard
deep in the fertile soil
sometimes I feel forgotten
no one sees me hiding here.

A (No) Thanks Day

A (No) Thanks Day

How can I be thankful when there's so much to do?
How can I be thankful when my anxieties are through the roof?
How can I be thankful when it feels so hard to breathe
Filled with disappointments, discouragement, and defeat? . . .

Dear Heavenly Father, many of us are suffering, especially mentally. This year has been a beast and a burden almost too much to bear. But Lord, with Your help, we can rise from this. We can do all things through Your strength.
