Is God Asleep?

Where’s God?
Is God asleep?
It seems to me
In these days of COVID
He is fast asleep at the helm.
Where do His miracles abide today?
God does not sleep in dark times;
He lights a candle and waits for our
enlightenment to see His path and find the dawn.

Yesterday was Quadrille Monday at d’Verse.
Lisa asked us to use the word abide
for our prompt
and write a Quadrille –
– poem of 44 words.

I was inspired by Dwight at Roth Poetry
who wrote his quadrille using
“Abiding Love” as his subject.
Thank you, {{{Dwight}}} –

Thanks for visiting JanBeek.
Try a quadrille – and share it with me, ok?

44 words…
Choose your own theme using “Abide” in it.
It’s fun!

See ya tomorrow.

Gardening is Hard Work!


Today at d’Verse, Victoria Sloto
asked us to write a Quadrille of exactly 44 words
using the word Garden.

Derrick Knight can tell you
Gardening is hard work.
Ask his wife, Jackie,
She’ll tell you he’s no jerk
When it comes to their garden
He’s the chief dead-header!!
Jackie plants and tends the garden
With utmost expertise
And countless hours
Of sweaty toil.

D’Verse, garden

Voice – a Quadrille


A Quadrille is a poem of exactly 44 words, not including the title, using a specific, assigned word. Today’s challenge on d’Verse is Quadrille #85 – Raising our Poetic Voices – and VOICE is the word.

Here is my quadrille:

Voice

Every writer has a voice.
You may not hear its tone
or timbre on paper
but its Intent,
Heart,
Compassion,
and Grace
Speak loudly.
In only a page or less,
you know
if you like that voice
or not.
Does
your voice
speak love?
