Who Belongs to Who?

Once in a blue moon you might find someone who is truly yours
Though it may take a lifetime to truly know

Volcanic eruptions release hot lava
We wait to see signs of obsidian stone

Or will we turn to slate from years of ash
Where immense heat and pressure clash

Pollen spreads more than love’s desire
Swollen, itchy eyes dampen the fire

What can one learn from a babbling brook
To have courage, find humor—
Laughing over rocks all the day

And know if that one is not truly yours
You still belong to the Lord
Oh yes, yours, truly.

Linda Kruschke and Paint Chip Poetry


This week we’re writing about Yours Truly. Which doesn’t mean you have to write about me, but you could. Or you could write a letter to someone and sign it Yours Truly. Letter poems can be fun. Let your imagination and creativity run wild with this one.

The paint chip words to include are blue moon, hot lava, babbling brook, and pollen. The angel card words are courage, harmony, and humour (these must be British or Canadian angels). I’m leaving it wide open for how many of these words you want to use. Use them all or just pick one.

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

  1. This made me smile. Some things we may not know or may not be able to wait long enough to know. But we can know He is truly our Savior.
