I write that

I want to write.

I want to do something that will make a difference.

Yet now, the words do not come.

Sadness clouds the desire to write.

Biblical bluster and platitudes neither inflame nor inspire.

Love slowly dispels the clouds of sadness.

I write that you may know the Life that you already have.

He is with you, beside you, and in you.

Look at the little..

A little baby who embodies hope for the future.

A seed which will produce a luscious tomato.

A morning sunrise which will burn away the fog.

The smile on the face of the face in front of you.

Be the hope which someone else needs.

  1. Good morning sir,

    I like this, but I have two suggestions:

    In the line: “Biblical bluster and platitudes neither inflame nor inspire.” Add the word “pious” before platitudes. It’s more melodic, more rhythmic. “Biblical bluster and pious platitudes neither inflame nor inspire.”

    In the line: “A seed which will produce a luscious tomato.” Change “tomato” to “fruit.” Again, rhythm and melody. “Seed” is one syllable, “tomato” is three. Also, tomatoes are indeed fruit, but they don’t strike the ear or brain as viscerally as “fruit” which also has Biblical overtones.

    “A seed which will produce delicious fruit.”

    Try that…
