Look Up or Look down #poetry #photography

Below stately columns tall

and lofty words

men rise and fall

 many have gone before us

some to revere

others under breath

we sneer

here lies the mystery

if you led with honor

you revered through history

were you the fool

they will malign you

curse your rule

lead for the lives of the least

understand their pain

and eyes will tear

when they consider your reign

A leader may be one who leads a few or the masses but a good leader is neither arrogant nor small in the way he looks upon others.  He is the one little children want to emulate when they are grown.

Our prompt at Poet’s United – Leader.

Entrance to the Damned #flashfiction #pen

monument

Enjoy Pen of the Damned today as we have a treat for you. Each of us has written a flash fiction (100 words) based on the picture prompt (above). The words I have placed below is dark compilation.  Come over to the Pen and feast in our dark banquet hall.

The weeping was for all who, on small feet, come, hands overflowing with offerings; the dead screaming in their endless burn. They prowl the shadows, “You cannot flee, ” says a voice that is not his own.  Husks of comforting strangers fill my head with their thoughts.

“I always laugh last.”

Faith & Entropy

Gud skaper noko nytt ved sitt Ord og sin Ande, vi kan ta imot det i tru og få oppleve at han gjer sitt verk med oss. Hans skaparkraft verkar konstuktivt i våre liv og skaper noko som er verdifullt for oss. Naturkreftene verkar nedebrytande, i fylgje entropilova, men Gud er Ånd og det som er født av hans Ande består. Jesu frelsesverk er fullbrakt og fullkome. Han er den siste Adam, som er ifrå himmelen og som for oss har vorte ei livgjevande ånd. Han gjev oss den Heilage Ande frå himmelen av berre nåde. Han gjev oss det evige livet.
