Writing prompt instructions:
This week we’re going to switch gears and write a little poetry. Writing poetry helps us work on cadence and rhythm which can make for better fiction. So by flexing our poetry muscles, we can in turn create more fluid fictional pieces. Please write a narrative poem that focuses on the workings of a family, whether it be your own or one that you’ve created from scratch. Good luck!
*This poem is written for Jason, my betrothed. I am not a poet, nor consider myself one. It is inspired by the first time I saw him with his two young children. I was already in love with him, but his calming demeanor, and patient touch, really sealed the deal upon witnessing. I love you and I am honored to be part of your life and your future bride.
A brand new start.
Down every course.
In timeless existence.
As precious as treasure,
In God’s gracious light.

I like it!!!
What a lovely tribute to the man you love and I love the photo too. Put the two together and you have something wonderful.
I see you from tag surfer in wordpress,
I absolutely love that.
Just lovely. What a sweet poem. Your love and admiration really comes through.
Beautiful, Angelia!. Straight from the heart.
You can tell how much you cherish and respect this man. And I found some interesting word pairs like “affirming deserve.”. I like the way that sounds. Very sweet!
Wow! This blows me away. Seriously. Beautiful.
Lovely indeed! I think you can write poetry, my dear! 🙂 What did Jason say about this ode to him?
Has Jason seen this? I think it’s beautiful and should be used sometime during the pre-wedding celebrations.
I get tickled everytime I open your blog and see those three laughing faces up there. They’re enough to brighten my day, any day.
I’m not much of a poetry reader, but I though this was beautiful!
Oh. So sweet.
Pure poetry from the heart. I love the things you deeply admire about him, and that picture is such an apt reflection of your tender words.

I adore how his fatherly actions inspired your complete love. You’re so correct – those moments are so telling of a man.
Fantastic job. “Blanketing comfort” – speaks volumes. Congratulations on your great love.
Isn’t it awesome to express your love in these words. I could feel it come through. xox Wilma
This is so sweet and a beautiful tribute to your husband! I also am always in awe of people who can rhyme.
I swear, you are good at all things writing-related. Super sweet!
It’s beautiful. 🙂
Very Nice Angelia, I am impressed with both the poem and picture.
You did good 🙂
Oh that was so beautiful! Thanks for sharing that with all of us!
