Forgotten Son Rise - Ten Words

She stares into the misty morning shadow; a crimson sky just breaking the distant shore. Once an endless tempest of doubt she'd grow; His grace no longer forgotten; her faith He'd restore. Each yesterday devoid of any compassion. Her dreams are filled with tenderness and affection but she knew not love of any depth or fashion. The harvest of her spirit reaped only abjection Now she smiles as the coming sun greets the shore The pain of yesterday but a fading reflection In her heart she will hold His grace forevermore No longer in shadow but wrapped in His protection Her dreams are filled with tenderness and affection His grace no longer forgotten; her faith He'd restore No longer in shadow but wrapped in His protection Now she smiles as the coming Son greets the shore 04/07/2018 Given words: Crimson, forgotten, grace, harvest misty, shadow, shore, tempest, yesterday

This is beautiful. A lovely flow with great rhyme and touching subject. A very nice example of how to write a quatrain.

Morning James :) because I used some randomly placed repeating lines I wasn't quite sure how I was going to label this one. I guess it could fit under that! Thank you James

Great poem. Life is full of pain and sorrow but we do have the hope. Jesus went to the Father and is preparing rooms for us and will return again. Oliver
