Gather Round

Poetry

I’ve been a bit discombobulated lately. How many times can we really use that word in our daily vernacular? I like the bouncy feel of the big word, so I squeeze into it whenever I can. Good thing it comes in my size. Anyway, in my current state, I could not find the Random Acts of Poetry directive for this week.

What’s a girl to do?! Whatever I want, I reckon. So, here are some simple words, verbs and nouns, clinging to one another…

Come

friends.

Gather
round.

Join
hands.

Offer
prayers.

Meld
hearts.

Shed
tears.

Share
faith.

Come
friends.

Gather
round.




How do you gather round?

Do you offer your hands to another in prayer? Bowing heads and physically grasping your fingers together? Taking turns talking to God on behalf of one another.

Or do you offer your hands for another in private prayer? Doing it for them, by spiritually grasping their heart with your own. Hold another’s needs high, while you kneel low.

* Another RAP:
I also wrote a ditty for this week’s RAP assignment — July 31st.
Somehow I missed and messed-up on submitting it properly. Again.
This has been a crazy week…
an unexpected medical diagnosis (or four, actually)
for your child can discombobulate even the sanest.
Since I was already on the edge, part of me fell right over the side.
I imagine I will write of it soon. For now, you are invited into my favorite kitchen.

  1. I think simple wordsare oftenwhat life calls for.Thanks for letting me visit with you! I'm gathering, joining…btw–I'm so impressed you can spell discombobulated (I copied it from your post.)

If you have somethin' to say, I reckon this is where you should do it. (If you're a newbie hereabouts, your first comment will be held for approval - cuts down on spam.) Thank ye for chatting!
