Echoes of Peace

My fear rises
The verse echoes in my mind
Do not be anxious, pray, be thankful

Peace reigns in my heart

I see her fear
The verse echoes from my mouth
Do not be anxious, let’s pray, be thankful

Peace reigns in her heart


Today is Quadrille Monday at dVerse Poets Pub where De is calling for our 44-word tomes that include some form of the word echo. Seemed appropriate to write something that had a bit of an echo to it.

So I went to read some other Quadrilles, and after 3 that seemed very, very long, it dawned on me that I’d written a 30-word poem instead of a 44-word poem. I guess 30 days of doing something does create a habit! I’ve fixed it now.

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.

    • Thanks. I didn’t really even notice the “communal” aspect as I wrote it, but you’re the second person to comment on it. I suppose that might be a by-product of spending the weekend at a Christian women’s retreat. 🙂

  1. “All we need is love–something the world has too little of.” –the Beatles. You know me, short poems freak me a bit-though I enjoy participating in quadrilles.

    • But I love when you write Quadrilles. Perhaps you need to remember “Don’t be anxious” when faced with a short poem to write? You do them so well.

  2. A very peaceful Quadrille, Linda, which has gone some way to calming the anxiety that has been playing havoc with me lately.

  3. I came by earlier, but I knew you’d catch it and fix it on your own, so now I’m back to say I love this. I feel peace here, and I needed it today. Thank you.

    • I did 30 days of writing a 30-word poem each day in April. So when I got to 30 I stopped out of habit. I expanded it to add back the words I wanted to be there in the beginning.
