Crispy Cry

Crispy red fire blaze,
burning blackened sky,
as my soul’s cries join the night.

The Cherub Face from the HeaderPoem Chain #1

Margaret and I decided to try something different and created a chain of poetry. We decided to see what we would come up with if one of us wrote a poem and then the other wrote what poetry that might inspire in us. Then the other would do so – and-so-on…

Since it was my idea I wrote the first idea. We decided I might start with a poem inspired by a “colour”. Perhaps because I am rather taken with starting the day with a Haiku I instinctively wrote a Haiku and started with my poem “Green, Life in the Raw”.

This led to this 10 poem chain:

  1. Green, Life in the Raw –  DWPenner
  2. Raw – magsalden
  3. Heart Fires –  DWPenner
  4. Passion Bleeds – magsalden
  5. Vanilla Plane –  DWPenner
  6. Tinge – magsalden
  7. Angels Winging From Earth to Sky –  DWPenner
  8. Not Forgotten – magsalden
  9. Flowers Wave –  DWPenner
  10. Prosperity Rain – magsalden

We each have our own style and so the poems while inspired by each other are very different from each other and cover a broad spectrum of topics.

I hope you enjoy this project. We plan to do it again some time in the future.

Stoke the Fire

Many distractions try to inhibit or completely cut off my creative  impulses – but I know that my creativity is a God given Holy Spirit inspired gift, that God has given me to compensate for the struggles I have had to face within my life’s journey.

Weeds have their anorexic knuckles
Clasped around my melancholy neck.
Ready to wrench my head clean off my body –
In a vane attempt  to stop
My creativity flowing through my extremities –
Because it knows my soul needs to stoke
The fire of passion to do more than just exist.
Oh weeds loosen your death grasp.
My passion fire is too strong.
Words nourish my soul.

Fire in my Belly

My heartfelt prayer, not just to flicker for God’s glory, but to become a history maker for the Kingdom of God.

May I soak in your presence.
May I rise in your love from underneath demons’ claws.
Place fire in my belly that won’t just flicker,
But will erupt and drench those who I meet in glory love.
