two poems for #NaPoWriMo 04/03/2014

Posted on Updated on

I have my makeup work to share this morning, and today’s poem for #NaPoWriMo. The makeup is for April 1st, and it’s a haiku I wrote this morning when I stopped to spend a moment with some daffodils in the front yard. Today’s poem is a reflection on a sweet, old King James version Bible I found yesterday at a thrift store. It cost me a quarter.

in grasses green and brown –
looks like rain, today

these ancient words speak to me
they bind me fast, they set me free
they graft me to a living tree
these words that were, are and will be

    I came for the poetry, stayed for the enlightened view of same-sex marriage. Keep posting and I’ll keep reading!
