Sword



Holy pages turned
A blade, whet against the soul
Lay quiet - lay still

  6. Thanks Lorrie for coming over to read my poem, I am glad you enjoy some of my poems!

    I have a couple of questions for you... have you ever had anything published? [because you should seriously consider that!] And do you know of any sites that can help with writing all sorts of poetry writing and styles?

  7. Vee - I've been feeling pretty 'blocked' with my writing lately.. thank you so much for your encouragement!! I've had a few things published via on-line zines but haven't submitted for years now.
    My favorite writing site on the web is http://christianwriters.com. This is actually where I got the prompt at for this haiku! It's a writing "community" - bulletin board style. I've been wanting to delve into different styles myself so if I find something neato along those lines specifically I'll pass it along to ya!
    Blessing galore :-)
