NaPoWriMo 2020 #1

                                                 It’s the little things that count.


It’s day 18 of the NaPoWriMo series and it’s but day 1 for me. I was staring at the prompts pushing down my writer’s block and have yet to wonder if it’s fully gone down the slope.

That said, here’s my tiny tidbit to this wonderful series hoping words like magic would find me soon.


An Ode

A beacon of light,
You led us ashore.
Lucid and sharp,
Simple yet bold.
With a heart of gold
And an iron fist
May you lead
many more like us
To safe harbors.

Note: This is a poem I wrote for a dear teacher at the behest of her loving students.

hounded by loneliness,
fear and anxiety.
in the dark side
in the unknown
waiting for the storm to pass by
when life is so not fair
I know you are still with me, Jesus.
Friend so faithful. My forever love
You are good
even when life is not
Your love abounds
Your hand consoles
My hope in the dark, Jesus, you are.
I know you are waiting
to heal me, to touch me,
to sink me in your immense AGAPE love.
I know you are
Waiting for me
waiting to show me the light
waiting to shower me with your joy.
I know you are good and I know you are love.
You know me, my whole self and yet you love,
even my broken bits.
You are good. My forever love.
