Sunday Sonnet

🎀

Leave not to Chance whatever is to be,
Like devastated gambler left forlorn,
Or someone who succumbs to destiny,
To elements exposed like sheep late shorn;
Though Future never fully can be known,
Save by the Might within whose Hand it lies,
The seed of Hope within each soul is sown,
The fruit of which predictions oft defies;
Slide not into the quicksand of despair,
When untowards life’s passage overrun,
Stay anchored to the paragon of care,
Whose constancy can never be undone;
Leave not to Chance whatever is to be,
Let Love provide aegis for you and me!

  6. What an unusual – and very thoughtful – choice of topic. It’s got me thinking. Not that I leave things to chance … but so many do, and you’re right, to live that way is to risk missing out on some very important things in life. But also, activists (like me) need to learn the lesson of ‘letting go’ and trusting God’s love for both the present and the future. A fine line between our responsibility and His … sometimes we need help to work out which side we need to stand! Hugs xx

  7. I love the seed of hope……a beautiful poem, certainly food for thought. I seem to be a child of destiny, whatever I plan never really comes off yet other opportunities throw themselves at me, at the most unexpected times….life eh?xxx

  9. The poem is beautiful and meaningful, as are all your poems … but I have to say the peach-coloured rose took my breath away and I had to look at it several more times! So beautiful!

    Hugs!
