Reactions by Melanie R.

Reactions, Reactions.
Pulsed like contractions.
Not just the pain,
I’ve been through it;
in my body now all of these years.

Just then it hit me.
Wild fire and crippling.
Felt the burn as I waited,
and prayed in the dark suffering.
As My savior led the way,
because reactions were made.

Can’t hold it back now; not the same.
Don’t feel right being this way.
Passed through old familiar strains.
Flooded fields, fluttered gates.
Did my body betray?,
While reactions were made?

Should’ve known it was coming,
Pointed straight to my trusting.
Would’ve loved this to heal me,
and soul-fire fill me;
but reactions-
were no over-reaction.

As it raced through my veins;
He saved me from hurt,
and the poisoning flame.
Rescued out of that day-
because reactions were made.

There He shared in the low,
Shook it off-
He’s in control.
All my asking He Knows-
My reaction through pain.

Started from a reaction,
New life put me in action-
I am healed through His Name!

Danny’s Monday Poem for you.

You are about love and not about hate. You help motivate and always appreciate.

You are so strong and never forget who you are. You have overcome so much and above any struggle by far.

I wish you happiness, so make that your goal. Because you deserve to smile and comfort your soul.

So, Happy Monday as you pour coffee or tea in your cup. And always remember these 3 words…NEVER GIVE UP! 🩷.
-Danny Gautama

#MightyPoets lunacy

Sudden flashes slight the moon
Being presents a flame too hot for eyes to bear
Nourishing and poisonous
But the circle embraces us
Mother lover life
A spinning wheel
A detail to tell
Moses says
It warmed his skin for days
Representations of divine insight
On his faith and God given rights
But Lo the dark matter crept inside
Such a vast ocean of thought
Patience needed
Outstretched hangnails for the feet
That wanted to spring and leap into action but spread out like an immovable rock
Trapped and waiting for the end

Write a nature haiku with us.

Happy Earth Day! Let’s the start the week off with a little nature-inspired poetry, shall we? Haikus — a traditional, short-form poetry type that originated in Japan — follow this syllable pattern: 5-7-5.

☀️Here’s the one that @xokat wrote:

The sorbet sun wakes,
Stretching its warm, bright fingers —
“It’s your turn,” she says.

We’re excited to read yours! (And, if you’re feeling up to it, we hope you get a little fresh air and outside time.)

Just Talking in Rhymes again when I Feel alone #MightyPoets

Endure Pain like "Bane"

Saying I'm playing the Victim

But they Don't know what it's like to be stuck in a prism

Or Stuck In The Mud

Like A Spud After A Flood

Trying to stay Strong

Like I been lifting all Day Long

The bicep curl

Until I'm built like "Bill Pearl"

Up in arms

Like I'm holding a umbrella ☔ in a thunderstorm

Until My Rotator Cuff Busts

My Shoulders had Enough

Spend a little time outside today. Write about what you see, feel, and smell.

Harmony isn’t just about how we interact with ourselves and others, but also how we interact with the world and our surrounding environments — both natural and man made — as well. Today, let’s take a mindful moment, get some fresh air, and share what we experience. 🌆

✍️ When you go outdoors take a note of what you see, feel, and smell.

Share with us what you’ve captured in the comments below!
