I Am the Good Shepherd

“The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.”  The psalm is such a beautiful, timeless portrayal of the Lord’s love and care for His children – from the green pastures and quiet waters to rod and the staff to the overflowing cup.  The author was king David himself; a …

Wonder Why

//I wrote this a few days ago in response to all the tragic deaths that have been in the news lately.  Pray for our country.// Wonder why The blood of innocents and heathens runs Together in a river to the sea – The waves lift up their aching voice in …

I Am the Door

//So I decided to do a poem for this one.  What do you think?// It was only a wardrobe Until she stepped through the door Out of lonely faded grandeur into Snow-white lamplight And it was only a stable Till they were dragged through the door From fire stricken darkness …

Pendragon’s Heir by Suzannah Rowntree | Book Review

So… This is my first book review!  I heard of Pendragon’s Heir first through a review on Schuyler’s blog (where she put it a great deal more eloquently than I can, but oh well); and now I finally got a chance to read it. About the Book (From Goodreads) Blanche Pendragon enjoys her undemanding …

NaPoWriMo Week Three

Well I started running out of inspiration about a week ago, so I decided to root through Dictionary.com’s Word of the Day archives and see if I couldn’t find some ideas (which, by the way, was a very interesting exercise.  Have you ever heard of clishmaclaver?).  Anyway, these poems are the …

NaPoWriMo Week 2

Almost halfway done already.  Wow… that’s hard to believe.  This week’s poems ended up being a lot deeper than I expected, which is weird but also kind of cool.  They were also harder to write than last week; I don’t really know why.  And I was going to post this …
