Here is the third collection of seven past dailies from the Facebook Page! This includes a couple cinquains and a quote from my small book (which is really a long short story, but almost novella length).
With faint dry sound,
Like steps of passing ghosts,
The leaves, frost-crisp’d, break from the trees
– Adelaide Crapsey
The doorless walls
Of false content and peace
A soul in truth is not a soul
– Patrick Lauser
Bless the LORD all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul.
“They were weeping for it everywhere, as they had been always. She who stood there screamed and stabbed for torment of hate and loss, and from marshes and cities all desire that had not learned its own futility rose and swelled in hers. The litany of anguish poured out as if it were the sound of the earth itself rushing through space, and comfortless forever the spinning globe swept on, turning upon itself, crying to itself; and space was the echo of its lament, and time was the measure of its sobs.”
– From “The Greater Trumps” by Charles Williams
Feelings are like conclusions: they can be correct or incorrect. Unlike conclusions, they do not always come from you, and so are not a part of you, unless you choose.
– Patrick Lauser
“As they went further towards the sun the trees became larger, spreading and twisting, turning the sun’s light into a self-strangling mesh of ever sharper shadows and ever fiercer light.”
– Patrick Lauser, from my book, “A Foreshadowed Way”
Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.
Till next week, God be with you all!
