Day 3: My 30 Day Poetry Journey

Day 3- I am going to find the nearest book (of any kind). Turn to page 8(hopefully it will have page 8). I will then use the first ten full words on the page in a poem. I can use them in any order, anywhere in the poem.

The nearest thing to me this morning was my bible, and the first ten words on page 8 is this "Never again will there be a flood to destroy the ........." (NIV Version) Part of Genesis 9:11

I had a tete a tete with God AGAIN today
He said daughter do you see what I see
A world of lost sheep all gone blind
Swimming in a FLOOD of deceit
Seeking gods that will NEVER speak or live
Walking to the stream with a lost WILL
how they seek and find an abode THERE
Along the forest haunted by wolves

Why do you sit with your arms folded?
When you can fight for a world divided
Why sleepeth thou amidst THE chaos
When you can BE renewed and redeemed
Now is the time TO put on
My armor and move on
With a power that will DESTROY evil
Carrying my word to the lost ones
