Poetry: Bible Inspired Poetry

It's Friday! Time to share some of my own writing.  A while back, as I was experimenting with poetry more, I decided to write some biblical poetry. Poetry is already in the Bible, so why not come up with some of my own in my own style?  I'd love to write more of these, to … Continue reading Poetry: Bible Inspired Poetry

Poetry: I am not alone

It's Friday!  This is a poem I wrote a while ago when I was feeling rather anxious about an ongoing conversation about an upcoming event. I wrote some of the stuff that actually became lines in this poem and someone (as a writer would) said it would make a good story, so I tossed into … Continue reading Poetry: I am not alone

Writing Prompt: I Survived the Cold

Someday, I'll get through those and you'll see them … Continue reading A Poem: Today I did the dishes

Anyway, they started a bonus episode thing called Not Your Pastor's Pulpit. As I listened to these, I kept thinking 'I should … Continue reading My first poetry reading

Writing Prompt: If These Walls Could Talk

It's Friday, which means it's time to share my own writing. I wrote this a week and a half ago of a writing prompt in AT. We all have stories, the things that have shaped us, the people who have left indelible marks in our lives and on our souls.  Of course, everyone who's left … Continue reading Writing Prompt: If These Walls Could Talk

Poetry: Lost at Sea

It's Friday! This is the day where I share excerpts, short stories, poetry, or other bits of my writing with you.  In my writing group, Author's Tale, we had a mini-poetry prompt, Lost at Sea, and we were challenged to write a poem based on that theme.  When we went to Chicago a few months … Continue reading Poetry: Lost at Sea
