The Timing of It All

The Timing of It All

It’s in the exact timing of it all
Since the Garden of Eden and the fall
How every circumstance that occurs
Happens with a spiritual chasseur 

We may miss fate’s deeper hidden intents
When we masquerade in mistake’s laments
A trip to the left, a slip to the right
When we lose sight, we falter from delight  

Weary the warrior, unwilling to decide
Whether to fight full force, or run and hide
The battle is the decision, not the outcome
For when a choice is made, doubt succumbs

My heart seeks Heaven’s sensible design 
The sanctuary of truth’s shining shrine 
To understand which pedestal will stand
Where I can’t fall, and love will hold my hand

Shall God redeem me, amidst confusion?
I pray for day of grace, despite delusion
I see my life’s regrets written on the wall
Change may occur in the timing of it all

Wow! Incredible images, alliteration and metaphor, all the elements of a fantastic poem were found. Just amazing. 

Favorite Stanza: 

My heart seeks Heaven’s sensible design 
The sanctuary of truth’s shining shrine 
To understand which pedestal will stand
Where I can’t fall, and love will hold my hand

I enjoyed reading your poem very much. I cannot wait to read more of them. 

Happy New Year 2020 -- A new year, with great new opportunities for us creative writers and creative readers.

Hi Katina...Thank you so much for your very gracious comments.  I do like alliteration and rhyming, and that helps the flow of my poetry I believe...I am trying to challenge myself sometimes with more freestyle writes. to balance out my writing.  I am so pleased that you liked my poem.  I wish you a very blessed new year for 2020!  xo ;)

Thank you for the reply. 

How long have you been a member here? 
Do you know if they have a forum for members to communicate? That would be great. 

I'm working hard at learning different styles of poetry. I need my books on tape to fully understand the words and the sound of the stresses. 

You have a genuine, natural, poetic voice. It truly shines on the page. I'm already a fan. 

Happy New Year to you also. 
This year -- think -- Publication

Hi Cheerie, 
You really are a multi-talented, beautiful writer. 
Very deep and moving piece, as always. It seems like life is one horrible struggle after another, and so painfully arduous, but keep your wonderful faith, and outlook, and you will be rewarded. You're too wonderful not to be. 
I love this, for some reason: 
'My heart seeks Heaven’s sensible design 
The sanctuary of truth’s shining shrine 
To understand which pedestal will stand
Where I can’t fall, and love will hold my hand' 

And I love the hope implied at the end. 

Stay amazing, and God will reward you. 

Love, and hugs, 

Matthew.

Hi Matthew.  Thank you so much!  I wish you the best for the new year in 2020.  God's timing is not always our timing in life....and we can miss out on delayed decisions and our choices definitely shape where our lives are going...It can be confusing to know which paths are God's intentions for our lives.  I appreciate you always sharing your views on my writes and what you like...I think the lines you quoted are my favorite too as I wrote them.  You have a knack for knowing what my heart is conveying...Love n Hugs and blessings  xo ;)

You're such a bright light in this world(the Cosmo world, and the real world). I hope your heart is blessed with every beautiful peace in life that there can be, in the upcoming year, and always.

Matthew.

xo...Well, sometimes life can feel pretty unfair and unkind....and it is nice to know that there are good people like you that only spread love and kindness that is hard to get used to...but appreciated.  I am so glad we are friends. ;) xo

Me too. It's such a pleasure to know you. 
I can't tell you what it means to me. Honestly. 

Love, 
Matthew. 

PS. Sometimes I spread butter, too, on a bagel, or something, but thank you.

I sometimes spread my peanut butter on chocolate...Yummy!  ;)   But love and kindness is the best spreading agent.... for sure!

My Dear Cherie,

Life's hourglass is recording
Each day we share on Earth
Sometimes, we have passion
Others, there is a dearth

.
But through it all, He guides us
And saves us from the serpents beckoning
Because, I am vested with the knowledge
That He is my Eternal King

All my love,
Larry xxx
