Reassurance

Peach-gilt horizon

Dusk wears cape of God’s glory

His reassurance

Arc of Spring Fire

Rainbow crowning dusk

Gold falls on evergreen tops

Arc burns like spring fire

Glory paints east horizon

Gazers in open-mouthed awe

Dusk Blessings (NaPoWriMo 2020)/Poem In Your Pocket Day

If I haven’t completely lost my mind, we’ve come to the end of this year’s NaPoWriMo—what a month it’s been!! 

And I’m fairly sure it’s “Poem In Your Pocket Day”…the poem I offered in 2013 follows the haiku.

Mother-of-pearl dusk

Silver’d gray-blue, faintest pink

Day o’er-flowed blessings

In 2013, I wrote under the name Jael Sterling.  I saved this limerick, written for Poem In Your Pocket Day that year…and dusted it off to share🙂

Poem in Your Pocket Day—2013

I keep a poem in my pocket,

More treasured than heirloom heart locket.

Words filled with God’s grace

Light a smile, wreathe my face—

Worst days, I’m still starred on His docket.

Rain…Poets’ Night

Dusk has gone black

Rain’s a jet necklace

Puddles fill with her ebony beads

It’s an elegant night for poets

Word-dreams drenched in tears only need polishing
