Sunday Poem, NaPoWriMo

I’m catching up with my weekend poems for the poem a day project through NaPoWriMo for the month of April, so please bear with me as this is the second poem of mine to be posted today! I have, through the years, tended to prefer free verse and haiku as my poetry writing style, but for some reason, over the last week, Dr. Seuss-esque rhythms and rhyming have taken my poetry over. I know not why. Anyway, here is Sunday’s poem.

He Is Risen!!

Easter morning dawn.
Women hurried to the tomb,
The tomb is empty!

He is risen!! He is risen indeed!
Life everlasting, will never be the same!

Christmas Morning Is Nearly Upon Us

IMG_1560

Christmas morning
is nearly upon us,
there are only last minute
things to do.

Children are filled with excitement,
Well, frankly, I am too.

We no longer dream,
of sugar plums,
dancing,
in our heads,
but we all dream
of something fantastic,
while aslumbering
in our beds.

Santa Claus is coming,
little kids sing with glee,
but is he enough to
save the world,
or even you and me?

I believe we need a savior,
one holy, and lovely
and true,
to save everyone
in the world,
even me and you.

Christmas is
about forgiveness,
joy, love, and great peace,
not material gifts at all,
but a story of our
soul’s sweet release.

A baby was born,
on the first Christmas morn,
God in the flesh you see.

He came with great love
and forgiveness,
of that
we should sing with glee.
