Prompt 139: Grace

Thanks to Brandi of Recklessly Me for this week's prompt, grace. Here are her poem and image:


Grace is
Always giving more and
Receiving a little less.

Grace is
No better than the pauper on the street, and
No less than than the débutante.

Grace is
Even when you don't agree.

Grace is
Loving with all of yourself and
Expecting nothing in return.

Grace is
Supplying the needs of others
With a pure heart.

Grace is the sun in all its splendor
Shining brilliantly on the world.

Grace is
You and
Grace is
When we are just as we were intended to be.

  3. this is a lovely poem. It is wonderful to read what you consider grace to be. Grace is a word that I let teach me regularly.... it has endless gifts to offer. Thank you for a wonderful prompt Brandi.

    OSI, thank you for your lovely clear instructions, well done!

  4. Beautiful poem...wise words, and so uplifting!



    There's much in the world that you can't explain.
    It's revealed for you to remember
    by the whispering voice of a distant train
    or a midnight rain in november.

    Horizon within! You can always find
    the keys to Enigma. Let's mention
    one basic Truth: of spirited Mind
    is Nature naught but extension.

    Internal expanses! In dreams, ridden
    by fear and longing you roam
    that deep Southeast in your soul hidden
    ...on your random journey back home.

    And: reciprocity: for mutual benefit, you will do me a favor promoting your own blog on mine!

    The best way to do it is lining up as a Follower, since then your icon will advertise you indefinitely, and I will follow you in return. Let's forge a mighty alliance of synergy and common interest.

  7. Hi Friends,

    I am new here. And I like the idea of a prompt to entice me to pen a few lines of verse.

    Thanks for the lovely initiative. Hope to become a regular.
