Irish Rain.... I absolutely love the message in your poem. As a woman of deep faith, I too believe that God is still there, answers are still there and hope is still there. Just keep hanging on and believing. Thanks for sharing this with us. Gramalot

This contains absolute truth. The sad fact is much of the world has forgotten God.
I enjoyed the rhyme but what I loved most was the message and how it was presented so simply.

    Thank you so much Mr. Bob...when I read poems, I like them to be simply put. If I have to stop, and wonder what in the world it means, ha ha....not even interested. So I like to write simply too.

This is a very well written sonnet. It has great imagery. I believe it is written with real sincerity, and from a very strong faith.

How I wish I had six stars to place on this lovely testimony of faith in God's ability to overcome the evil of this world. " ...we can't go somewhere God has never been."

I love the form and content of this Shakesperean sonnet. The line "We can't go somewhere where God has never been" jumped out at me - I love that line and that idea.

To me, this poem operates on two levels; I think that many of us feel that society as a whole is losing its moral compass, and then each of us individually probably experience times when all seems dark. Your poem is very reassuring on both fronts.

A beautiful poem of faith. I loved the artwork and scripture. (one of my favorites)

I liked the beginning with a question to draw the reader into the poem.

Loved the last stanza.

Very nicely done.

Blessings
Janet

I can tell you right now, before I even write another word about this glorious poem that it is exactly what I needed to start my day, and it is going directly onto my bookshelf as I finish this review.

Oh, I guess that is a review of sorts, isn't it? Perfect cadence, beautiful rhyme but most of all, an uplifting - indeed comforting - message. My favorite line: "We can't go someplace God has never been." It doesn't get better than that.

Lovely sonnet on faith. It does seem like truth is lost and morality is dead. We live in harsh, scary times. Faith is very helpful in getting thru it.

yes, even in our dark, His Heaven's glow. <-- Remove apostrophe. It's just Heavens.

This is well-written. The meter is nice, as are the end rhymes. It is a poem with a message, both sober and reflective. Thank you for sharing.
