Bloganuary prompt for January 14, 2022

Write about a challenge you faced and overcame.

taking turns
letting each other go
only to learn again
how love grows,
Mother

love for you
became her care
until she joined you there
grief gives way to fields and wind
and now I hear your voice again

P  romises of
S  erenity
A  nd
 ove
M editations and
 trength

Wait on the LORD:
be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait, I say, on the LORD.

REST

Matthew 11: 28 (KJV): “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

I am reprinting the acrostic poem and Bible verse from March 21, 2010. Grateful and interesting to see older posts that are still viewed. The 2010 post includes a lily photo by Karl. I rediscovered acrostic poems with blogs.

From my Acrostic Poems page

names and addresses
for dear friends
no longer on earth
old address book

not yet written
in the overflowing book
cards and envelopes
with last known
addresses

still wanting to remember
what may no longer
be current – places I was
people I knew

Time of Singing, Spring 2018

“not yet written” and “still wanting to remember” were also published in All the Way Home: Aging in Haiku (2019). Edited by Robert Epstein. Middle Island Press; West Union, WV.

a small card
in a devotional book
from a thrift store

words of encouragement
from one person to another

I keep the card with the book
and its history today
and tomorrow
