Kimo...

 
Heavenly Grace

Darkened day of gloomy fright from above
Knowing the storm will pass by
Heavenly grace touched me

I loved it! I am reminded of the words I used to think was in scripture and found out later they are not. "This too shall pass". Aren't we blessed to have faith in God that He is watching over us. Thank you for sharing a new form of poetry. I will have to try my hand at that.
Love, Charlene

Thank you Charlene for the comment. Yes, I know we are blessed, for I myself feel it every day. I have since Lent returned to the Catholic Church. I am being drawn by Pope Francis - a Pope for the people...rg

Wow Rhoda! Much said in just three lines. Good use of imagery to convey your thought. Love the last line. Have a wonderful Easter my friend.

Blessings,
Karen

I'm silent from the powerful verses shared here. I'm just silent and want to read and meditate upon "Kimo" again. Thank you for the inspiration, Rhoda. Continued blessings! -MJ
