From Grace Comes Hope – A Quintet of Cinquains

the grace of God
I would be lost, alone
life itself quite impossible

the love of God
I would be unloving
my life so self-centered and me

the light of Christ
I would be in darkness
unable to see my blessings

the peace of Christ
I would be most fearful
worrying about little things

With all
God’s grace and love
His incredible light
peace from the heart of a Savior
comes hope


I shared this today for Open Link Night at dVerse Poets Pub, where Grace talks about punctuation in poetry.

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. Ah, Linda you have me sighing with delight. Each of these excellently crafted cinquains is beautiful; together they are beyond words. Grace and peace to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    • Tony, Thank you for such a nice compliment. I am so blessed by God to be able to write poetry that glorifies Him! I am loving this 40 poems for Lent project. 🙂 And I was so happy to learn about how to write a cinquain from you. Peace, Linda
