Acrostic: Fright


Frightful night is here
Rattling bones scare the boys
Igor shrieks girls scream
Ghosts and ghouls galore
Hades' witches in black
Travelling on their brooms

One Single Impression: Sunset (an acrostic poem)


At Sunset:
a checklist

Sun is brilliantly setting
Under the clouds growing dark
Night is not far away
Splendor over the water
Evening formally announced
Today has been secured

One Single Impression: Limber Up


Limber Up;
the marathon

Stretch, limber up your legs
You've got a long long way to run
Dress, keep your body cool
Twenty-six miles is lot's of fun

One Single Impression: Paper

once pretty baby
painted vividly and wild
now warn and alone
sleeps in corners and the floors
child's paper doll was well used
prompted by One Single Impression word, paper

One Single Impression: River


[Click on picture to enlarge]

River of Tears

I lay down my head
I hope to sleep
My river runs high
High with tears I've shed
Shed those tears for you

Dreaming I hear you call
From the other side
That river I'll cross
Meet your arms to abide
River is my dowry for you

Oh were it to come true
Then true to you I'd be
Tears of joy would shout
Years of love we could share
River never running dry

One Single Impression: Language


Tower of Babel
man's vainglory God's revenge
scattered them abroad
languages by the zillions
separated from their friends

Tower of Babel, Genesis 11:1-9 NIV Bible:
1 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. 2 As people moved eastward,[a] they found a plain in Shinar[b] and settled there.
3 They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. 4 Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves and not be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”

5 But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower they were building. 6 The LORD said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”

8 So the LORD scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. 9 That is why it was called Babel[c]—because there the LORD confused the language of the whole world. From there the LORD scattered them over the face of the whole earth.

a.Genesis 11:2 Or from the east; or in the east
b.Genesis 11:2 That is, Babylonia
c.Genesis 11:9 That is, Babylon; Babel sounds like the Hebrew for confused.
