The Awesome Ever-powerful Holy Spirit

Can words be corralled?
Timeframes be contained?
Do memories fade away
Like morning dew?

Even dewdrops silently rise
And fill the skies
«Whispering» later as rain

So the Spirit goes where it will—

Leaving its mark

Patiently waiting

Till we surrender

In its presence


Monday Quadrille (Exclusive to dverse, and my personal favorite). A Quadrille is a poem of exactly 44 words, excluding the title, using any form of a prompt word decided by the host. Today’s word is ‘spirit’.

    Loving mention of the dew drops, even they rise up and become the rain. Beautifully writ.
