You Will Watch Us Rise

Evil cannot kill the children of God. By Emily Cozzens   Ash clings to my skin Smoke stings my eyes The trees are just skeletons Blackened and dry   The chimney still stands Amidst the white ash And the small plume of smoke Is no longer black   As we wade through The towering black timber Our footsteps leave Small puffs of powder   Sunlight beats through The deadened black trees With no canopy Left to relieve   The heat, the pain The story of horror Spelled out before me In each and every corner   But the sun illuminates The story of hope In a small blade of grass So people can know   It takes more than flames To snuff out our life Out of these ashes You’ll watch us rise   Watch us rise high High and tall Bring back the life That you thought would fall   We’ll stand like these trees Tall and proud Even though our ashes Are scattered on the ground   It takes more than flames To snuff out our life Out of these ashes You’ll watch us rise Psst, want to learn how to write poetry like this?

Art

As writers, we are all creators, mimicking the One who created us. Let us never forget that we are the greatest artistic works ever crafted, created to enjoy God, and glorify Him forever. – By Leanna Newby Paint. Living splotches of sympathy streaked across the alabaster portrait. The rough hands caressed the canvas, The brush of creation danced with a life of color. A creamy white glaze appeared along the ridge, Across the page, a golden heavenly glow peeked out of the rocky pinnacles, Observing the child below. The young boy gazed down into the deep azure ripples, Hoping to capture his heart’s desire. His delicate toes glided across the blanket of compassion with ease. His Father watches him with pride, Seeing, Reaching, Calling for him, Finally grasping his soul. Daily, The Artist illustrates mercy to the little boy, Adding dabs of serenity, justice, and wisdom. The unique spots of color dipped in grace, The cherished face never abandoned, never lost, In the mind of the forgiving Master. Alive. Dreams and hopes are portrayed. Awoken. The earth trembles, Touched by such a love divine.   Psst, want to learn how to write poetry like this?
