Ignite my Soul

You, Lord, are my lamp;
You turn darkness into light;
You enflame my heart
Your Spirit ignites my soul
Warmed to my core by the Son

written as a second response to Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge (#27) prompt of “light” and “dark”, this time in the form of a tanka inspired in part by 2 Samuel 22:29

Guard and Guide my Soul

Come now Spirit breeze
Blow gently through my conscience
Guard and guide my soul

Essence of Being

Methinks Descartes made it wrong
To determine the essence of being
Which sits not in mankind’s minds’ thoughts
But in our feeling, our souls singing
