R eviving spirit amidst  inspired pages

E ach biblical account throughout the ages

L ets me escape to a place of tranquility…

A las, I sit at Potiphar’s house and dine

X –ing the Red Sea into Moses’s time

A  man named Jesus turns water into wine

T hen I read of Solomon’s wisdom that God did impart

I study the intricate dimensions for a life-saving ark

O n my knees I am humbled and receive His spark
N o other book delivers such peace………

Written for Yasmin’s Contest—Letting My Hair Down

*Reading God's Word brings me great relaxation*

    Wonderful Acrostic! I'm found myself relaxing as I read it. I love the book of Job and also Ecclesiastes. Always some new wisdom and truth to discover. My very best wishes to you and have a blessed weekend - Tim

    this form is acceptable? I like it better than my Hot Coffee House form it's easier reading. In China and Japan it is accepted but in German or Italian it's not, languages are my biggest "bump in the road"

    Breathing in the holy word gives man wings just like a bird. Then we can soar above the clouds. Even in our own little shrouds. Hi Gwendolen, I'll have a big ole porterhouse, Thank You! :)

    No better way to let your hair down than by reading the Bible. Awesome poem. Thanks for your comment on my haiku. I have actually written over 1000 in the past 50 years.
