Sunday Sonnet!

DSC01873 (WP)

πŸŽ€

Benedictions in my life abound,
Bestowed, unearned, by gen’rous Grace Divine,
Yet, fear-filled thoughts my trust in Him confound,
Preventing would and would-not to align;
As though in constant conflict they engage,
Stalwarts of Doubt and Faith heave to and fro;
Instead of seeking suffering to assuage,
They seem to thrive on propagating woe;
Can Hope, so deeply rooted in the heart,
Restore semblance of sanity in mind,
Lest vestiges of trust from me depart,
Phantoms of emptiness be left behind?
Recount your benedictions giving thanks,
As curative, it as the premier ranks.

  6. ‘They seem to thrive on propagating woe’ – captured in a capsule. How true that is. And yet somehow deep down we know that it’s not the whole story, that there is hope and peace to come, starting even now with shards of grace.
