A Day of Transformation

I guess there’s nothing like a worldwide crisis to inspire creativity…I’ve used the gogyohka form, as well as “found poetry” for this piece.  Book titles and authors are listed following the poem ~

Britt-Marie was here

Living in Blood Hollow, she was changed too

That day a man called Ove smiled…

He experienced ordinary grace

And surrendered the rules of dreaming

Love Like Ivy

Eugi's Weekly Challenge – Love – February 10, 2020

Love, greatest gift given by Creator God…

It’s seeded in our hearts, and moves

Mysteriously, miraculously, magically

Invisibly via byways of arteries, marrow pure

Silver, neurons sometimes stirred mercurial…

From trust’s labored birth, love loops

Trailing through days, seasons, like ivy vines

Tender, hardy, resilient, fresh, timeless; and

Curling ’round, embraces others, circles rippling

As dew sustains each new budding leaf…

Love begins, passes, with courage to grow

Where there’s rich soil of soul’s generosity, grace.
