Dutch: I'll check one of yer "hub" poems.. Dutch...I've never tried poetry in prose. You hang in there. If that's the kind you like to write...do it. I work hard to make my poetry rhyme. I love the rythm and cadence and trying to make an idea come to life in rhyme...:-)
Hey, I think this is s pretty good start on a poem. Only got 2 takers so far! No poets in the forum tonite...? I'll try to write a little more to get the "believers involved...:-) There I added a few lines for "believers."
A rainbow in the clouds Symbolizing a covenant to Noah from this day on No floods of rain in shrouds will destroy the earth A new day has dawn
Blessings of another day to come For many entered not into His rest because of unbelief God calls a people who cease from their own works as He has done A people who will not rebell, hardened their hearts and suffer grief A people who surrender to the will of God and have no plans of their own
Then a touch of the painter's brush Grand colors of silver and gold Coming forth from obedience that only a refining fire can touch A people of God unfold Entering into the Holy of Holies through faith
Why? Because this was God's work preordanied beforehand So elaborate that not one can diminish The eighth day, a day of rest so grand Brings forth a reality which from the beginning was already finished
Racegirl; gotta give ya credit! Ya spent some time and even tho very religious ya came up with poetry ya can call yer own. Nice feeling isnt it? to look back at what your mind came up with when challenged. Good for you! thanks for responding!
I have never written poetry before I have published my very first poem and I am not sure that I have written poetry now. When it comes to poetry I am clueless as to what makes something a poem and what prevents it...
