Freeze-framed, flash-frozen, shrivelled before your time;

Frost has won the battle, but the war is in your mind.

Stunted mite, measly runt, bud in haggard role;

Life has robbed your freshest bloom, but cannot eat your soul.

    What a great pic! I think I see a web forming on that rose too.

    “The war is in your mind”–reminds me of Joyce Meyer’s great teaching–and is applicable currently. Excuse me while I go preach myself happy. God bless you–love, Caddo

  3. Melody, I know you do not accept awards, but I wanted to acknowledge the contributions you made to my growth in the blogosphere.

    I am inviting you to the Ligo Circle of Appreciation. This is not an award per se, but a chance to highlight 2 bloggers per day for 22 days in October.

    Thank you,

    I loved the photo and the message in this strong poem! Thanks Melody! I struggle to write one small simple poem a day, and here you zip off 3! God bless your faithfulness!

      Thanks Debbie! I consider this ability a gift, an unexpected delight along a long and tedious, and very difficult journey. I am so blessed that there are others who enjoy this gift as much as I do – thanks for your support and encouragement of my work!
