Chapter 133 of the book Daily Blessings from God
Daily Blessings - The Sapphonic Triad
"I Will Rejoice In My Weakness" by Sandra du Plessis

"... My grace is sufficient for thee; for my strength
is made perfect in weakness ..." (2 Corinthians 12:9)

No need to fear
when God is near;
He's our retreat
each threat's defeat.

In my weakness, He is my strength
He gives me grace;
I'll do good for others.

The book continues with Control Your Emotions. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Thank you for those who like to read Spiritual poetry and treat the author with respect.

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:

*** I am using in some cases more than the prescribed sixteen syllables for clarity purposes from the Bible verses; I try to keep it only two lines where possible. I am using KJV of 1959.
"...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


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


"So the poor have no bread,
then let them eat cake."
The queen has lost
her head. Freedom,
equality,
and brotherhood.

But still poverty persisted.
Time of terror.
Long live the Republic.

Pantygynt
