The Wild Blue Yonder

Today the sun is shining bright
The sky is cerulean blue
Spring flowers bloom ev’rywhere

I see that God is ev’rywhere
Because of His countenance bright
My spirit is sunny, not blue

Honesty of the heavens blue
Reveals God’s mercy ev’rywhere
Hope of a future so bright

Yonder bright, deepest blue is ev’rywhere


The NaPoWriMo optional prompt today is to write a Tritina, which is like half a Sestina. Well, I love the Sestina, but writing one can take the better part of a day or two. The Tritina is much more manageable.

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. I’ve labelled these kinds of forms poetic sudoko! 🙂 You’ve succeeded quite well here. Mine for NaPoWriMo went over to the darker side. I shall go completely the opposite and have some fun with the Sevenling and post tomorrow AM. Sestina??? oh my goodness……….have not even attempted!

  2. I had to laugh out loud at your comment about the Sestina taking “the better part of a day or two,” as I have lost a few days at the ruthless mercy of the form. The Tritina is much more enjoyable to write, and I truly enjoyed reading yours.
