Promise in Waiting

Waiting for the moment
Will I know when it is here
Am I waiting in vain
What I heard, was it clear

I don’t know how it will come
Or from whom it will begin
All I know is, it is coming
I just don’t know when

So many questions
I can’t begin to ask
Just thinking about the day
Is more than a task

Can my heart take the waiting
Will I stand till then
Will I start tomorrow like today
Waiting again

I will not make it happen
Through deception or strife
I will fulfill my destiny
But through His plan for my life

He promised, He cannot lie
I have a purpose to fulfill
I’m still waiting for the promise
You know, the one in His will

First at Last

You’ve made me last

So that I would be first

You’ve given fresh water

To those who thirst

And hunger after righteousness

For they are truly filled

With your Holy Spirit

The One who reveals the Will

Of the Father

His purpose in the earth

Equipped to complete assignments

Given to them at birth

Pains from creatures’ travailing

Waiting for sons to manifest

Bringing deliverance, salvation

Hope, redemption and rest

From labor to reward

What we’ve all been waiting for

The prize of the high calling,

What we’ve all been working towards

Has meet us at the back

The very back of the line

For he was always waiting there

For he had First in mind

The time … my toddler had surgery

Ellie the Crunch

So apparently my toddler was born with something called a dermoid cyst.

I noticed it only when he was 2 (not 2 months, 2 years old!). I was looking at him and noticed a small lump by his inner eye.

I started researching up and right, asking on line. It was in the middle of the pandemic and we had a Zoom visit with his pediatrician who dismissed it as a clogged tear duct or a stye.

I wasn’t satisfied. I knew it was neither.

I researched and researched and researched for weeks till I found something that looked similar. It was called dermoid cyst.

I found a small Facebook group dedicated to this subject and I joined it.

I quickly learned that dermoid cysts usually are formed in the womb from extra skin and hair tissues and they mostly present as a pit in the middle of the nose.

I love experimenting with poetic forms especially when there is a liberty to play with words. Because I find it hard to go with the technicalities of the pattern.

And I have flubbed up Sedoko into tanka. So have I rectified it later. But to go with the structural aspect of poetry is very important.

Today’s Poetry form is Cinquain and I am delighted to share few of the very popular Cinquains which are chosen among the most.

A Cinquain is a nifty five-line poem inspired by Japanese Haiku. It was invented by Adelaide Crapsey. She was an American poet who took inspiration from Japanese Haiku. 

By George Harbert

Here is my take on Cinquain poetry form. Hope you like it friends.

Thanks for the beautiful read friends. Your views and comments are much appreciated.

Much love and gratitude.

Turn from Sin

Ezekiel 18 New International Version

The following is the final part of this chapter entitled “The one who sins will die”.

19 ‘Yet you ask, “Why does the son not share the guilt of his father?” Since the son has done what is just and right and has been careful to keep all my decrees, he will surely live. 20 The one who sins is the one who will die. The child will not share the guilt of the parent, nor will the parent share the guilt of the child. The righteousness of the righteous will be credited to them, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against them.

21 ‘But if a wicked person turns away from all the sins they have committed and keeps all my decrees and does what is just and right, that person will surely live; they will not die. 22 None of the offences they have committed will be remembered against them. Because of the righteous things they have done, they will live. 23 Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the Sovereign Lord. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?

24 ‘But if a righteous person turns from their righteousness and commits sin and does the same detestable things the wicked person does, will they live? None of the righteous things that person has done will be remembered. Because of the unfaithfulness they are guilty of and because of the sins they have committed, they will die.

25 ‘Yet you say, “The way of the Lord is not just.” Hear, you Israelites: is my way unjust? Is it not your ways that are unjust? 26 If a righteous person turns from their righteousness and commits sin, they will die for it; because of the sin they have committed they will die. 27 But if a wicked person turns away from the wickedness they have committed and does what is just and right, they will save their life. 28 Because they consider all the offences they have committed and turn away from them, that person will surely live; they will not die. 29 Yet the Israelites say, “The way of the Lord is not just.” Are my ways unjust, people of Israel? Is it not your ways that are unjust?

30 ‘Therefore, you Israelites, I will judge each of you according to your own ways, declares the Sovereign Lord. Repent! Turn away from all your offences; then sin will not be your downfall. 31 Rid yourselves of all the offences you have committed, and get a new heart and a new spirit. Why will you die, people of Israel? 32 For I take no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Sovereign Lord. Repent and live!
