IGWRT's Mini-Challenge Sunday - "Serenity"


Serenity

Trees,
flowers,
moon and stars
move silently
and hear God's voice. Do we pause to listen?

This is linked with Imaginary Garden with Real Toads challenge "A Mini-Challenge for Sunday - Tetractys".  These are poetic forms that consist of at least 5 lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 10 syllables (total of 20) and should express a complete thought, profound or comic, witty or wise, within the narrow compass of twenty syllables.  I chose to write only one verse, but they can be written with more.  If so, the order must be inverted.   For more information, click on the above link.

This poem was inspired by wise words from Mother Teresa.
