Lesson seven, #introtopoetry  subject “flavor,” use found words in the content.  I found my words in a inspirational book on my desk.  I chose the third word in each title unless it was an article or preposition. Therefore this poem will have a inspirational flavor.  The words are endurance, purpose, harvest, uniformity, eagerness, power, word, difference, unrighteous, grudges, brother, carnal.  I will base my poem on the scripture that says, “Taste and see that the Lord is good….”

                   TASTE AND SEE

Like bread for the body is the Lord for endurance.

Store away sustenance available for the purpose

Of use when spiritual harvest is poor.


For the sake of uniformity,

wait with eagerness the renewal of power

Infusing our words to make a difference

In the lives of the unrighteous.


Don’t withhold love, don’t hold grudges,

Make all men your brothers

and all women your sisters.


As you feed your carnal body flavorful and

Stimulating food choices,

So feast yourself at the table of God

For flavorful and stimulating nourishment.


About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    That is pretty amazing, Oneta! WELL done! I loved this line: Of use when spiritual harvest is poor. Yes, we sure do have to save up sustenance for those times, don’t we!!!

      Oh, yes. We do have droughts on occasion. One advantage of age is to have gone through droughts before and knowing that we keep the faith and God keeps his promises!
