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.

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.

Red Ribbon Hope

Red Ribbon Hope

Love . . . bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

a red ribbon of thanksgiving
entwines around our hearts
threaded through our faith
secured in hope and love.

Looking for Love

Looking for Love

When you’re looking for love
in all the wrong places
it’s hard to imagine true love exists
but there is a love that transcends
wider, deeper, higher, longer
than any love could ever pretend

Time to Dance!

Time to Dance!

Hey! Can I get a shout?
How about an aaaaa-men!
Is there any praise?
Let me hear that hallelujah jam!
You know you want to
you know you have to
come one and all
come join the fun
