Word or Words

This was written for the Poetic Bloomings In-Form Wednesday—Appreciate (June 12, 2013). Earl Parsons created the form—a five-stanza poem about something we appreciate. He got the idea from the cheer: 2,4,6,8, Who do we appreciate? The syllable count for the lines is as follows: 2,4,6,8,7.

Word or Words

Oh, Lord,
teach me to love
and delight in Your Word
more passionately than my words.
Holy Spirit, draw me close.
