Some days I’ve been dealt
a miserable hand
no matching suits
nothing nearing a straight
not even a pair
But I’ve good cards too
A queen or four
Even a full house at times
And always I’ve had my
Ace in the Hole—Jesus
Today’s NaPoWriMo.net offering is using the jargon of the gambler’s profession, and is doubling as a Quadrille for the dVerse Poets Pub prompt calling for a 44-word poem using the word ace.
You WIN if you have Him!
Yep, every time!
ah! amen to that! <3
First time too to read that Jesus is the Ace in the Hole. Good one Linda.
Hopefully no one is offended, but it seemed like a good analogy to me.
Interesting interweaving of faith and cards! Well done.
I just shuffled the deck of words in my hands and this is what came out. 🙂
You Aced it!
Wonderful poem built around an Ace called Jesus. Love it.
First time I’ve heard Jesus called that; sweet notion–rocking the prompt.
I think I just made it up. 😉
YES. Love this, Linda.
Linda Kruschke on life and death, faith and fearlessness, music and poetry
They triumphed over him
by the blood of the Lamb
and by the word of their testimony;
they did not love their lives so much
as to shrink from death.
Revelation 12:11 (NIV).
