April Poem A Day Challenge, poem thirty:

Common Plight

Our days slip softly
By, making little lasting
Mark upon the world.
We are not mighty, famous,
Our steps leave no impression.

Our voices whisper
On the passing wind currents
Pushed toward silence.
Few hear our exclamations
Or heed our well-meant advice.

Our lives are vapor
Rising up from the soil for
Only a short while.
We go into the darkness
Of oblivion far too fast.

Our hope is in God
For He redeems existence
Making it worthwhile;
Without His enormous help
We quietly fade away.

The Dead Path… an extremely entertaining horror novel. I recommend this one.

I am grateful:

1.   I did not have to go out today.
2.   I completed the PAD Challenge and have thirty new poems.
3.   Mom is coughing very little.
4.   I am considering starting a page on Facebook for my writing and artwork.
5.   My blog has gained a few followers.

Monday, Monday, not my favorite day, but I hope yours has been productive. I know I say it every day, and yet the message should not get old. You need to do something creative to feed your soul.

Please leave a comment and let me know what you think of today’s entry. Your feedback helps me immensely.

Always,
Jo Ann

    So, no new poem every day, or so you say. I will miss them.
    I like the idea of seeing you on FB with your artwork and writing. Let me know if you get it going. I have to develop my page for my book on FB. I have a personal page, but it’s mostly for family and friends spread across the country. I need that connection for the book though–it’s one of the things I hope to accomplish in May now that the MNINB challenge is over.

    Keep writing, keep poeting.
    Have a great evening.

      Laura,

      I am not ruling out that I might find a way to poem every day during May. I just have to find the inspiration. Sometimes I think I could write poems on anything if given a prompt. Maybe I should ask you all here to give suggestions for subjects to write about.

      The Facebook page idea seems somewhat redundant to me, because I have a showcase here, but I think about it.

      Thank you for the encouragement. Stay tuned, I may find a way to keep the poems coming. Depends… I have enjoyed the challenges this month and am still thinking on how to keep the intensity.

      Always,
      Jo Ann
