Monday WRites 218

On bended knee is a good place to pray,
In the sanctuary of gratefulness to offer,
Return to original source, breaths of day,
To that God supreme and forever loving.
In humbled plea is a good place to pray,
Seek and in so finding, grow in kindness.
Of all things, great or small, a prayer say;
Ask, and it shall be a well worth given.
At night thy head to a pillow of hope lay.
For sunlight whispers to windows of dawn
The chapel of thanks is a good place to pray.

How to construct The Fold Poem HERE
and HERE


Do you collect anything? i collect haiku cards sent to me from haiku pals, i collect empty bottles of the perfume i use and i have collected, from when i used to sew for myself, buttons. I used to, as a teenager, collect stamps but i have none of those now. AND OF COURSE HAPPY MEMORIES. Today is the anniversary of my 1971 marriage. You might ask why acknowledge or celebrate, since i have told you before i live alone and i and not widowed. Well it's not complicated at all. I continue to love my husband, i continue to live in our marital home, i continue to be married to him and he continues to be the free spirited man[now much much older] that he is. So dear friends, What do you collect?

    1. Thanks for your appreciation Tom


  4. Gillena - a wonderful poem (which could itself be a prayer). We could all use a little more time on our bent knees! Congratulations on your anniversary. I say good for you if you and your husband have a way of living that works for you. I have a collection of moose objects, but I am trying hard not to collect any more - I am on a war against more "stuff"! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.

  5. Thanks for your appreciation Angie


  6. The Husband and I inherited the collections of our parents that I don't want to start any kind of collection. Though, I seem to be collecting the rocks I paint because I find myself not giving them away like I thought I would.
    That's pretty cool that you invented a new type of poem format. Happy Anniversary, Gillena!

  7. Thanks Susieee, happy you dropped by
