Chapter 162 of the book Daily Blessings from God
Daily Blessings - Sapphonic Triad
"Strive To Please The Lord" by Sandra du Plessis

"For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him..."
(2 Chronicles 16:9)

The eyes of God
see everywhere;
He seeks the hearts
of all sincere.

He wants to help those who're in need
and trust in Him;
I strive to please the Lord.

The book continues with Fruitful Thoughts. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Author Notes
The Sapphonic Triad

This form is an invention of our own Cliverde (Carol) and Pantygynt (Jim).

The form is as follows:

A two-line quotation (Free verse but the max total of sixteen syllables - must be concise and memorable) followed by a quatrain, four lines each of four syllables finally an 8-4-6 syllable envoi that moves us on somewhere...it should have a "satori" feeling.

You can use rhyme if you want, as done here:

"...pale flash not seen as slow you sink;
rocked evermore at Heaven's brink."

In bleak distress,
rejected maid
made her redress,
her pen a blade.

She wrote his lonely death at sea--
Inglorious!
and scored her page with glee.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


(or without rhyme)

"O wind, if winter comes
can spring be far behind?"

Let us linger
beneath these trees,
yellow-gold and rose,
this pewter sky.

River tumbles in jade and bronze;
riffles whisper--
O stay, stay! Won't you stay?
Ciliverde
