Unexpected Journey

While we abide in dreams
Poison sweeps
Secretly wrought, unearthed
Shameless and silent

While we abide in fear
Dreams sever
Smoking stench of
What may have been

While we abide in hope
Resistance gathers
New life birthed
A rising dawn
Now abides in me

Dversepoets.com Monday Quadrille. I cannot resist them, so scratched this one out. I hope it makes sense. It does to me.
The word is abide and I was intrigued with the three definitions, one of which I did not know.

“Abide is a verb with three distinct definitions. The first one is, “accept or act in accordance with,” such as a rule, decision or recommendation. The second one is, “be unable to tolerate,” someone or something. The third is, “continue without fading or feeling lost” in regards to a feeling or memory.”

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.
