October Poetry Challenge: Day Four

Living Water

Pale rose liquid fills the mug
Steaming and inviting, willing to share its warmth
My cup is full

Sip by sip, the goodness shrinks
Freely given, sometimes stolen
My cup is empty

Debris clings to ceramic
A sad stain echoing previous bounty
My soul’s dregs on display

Say a prayer, rinse them clean
Read His words, pour anew
Filling holiness, diluting dregs

Happy Friday, Poets!

Whether Saturday will make Day 5 or Day 1, I hope you’ll join me and keep the creative momentum flowing throughout the weekend.

I’d love to see the efforts of your poem in the comments below! I understand that these are first drafts and I hope you offer my humble words the same grace! Remember, Keep Showing Up!

See you tomorrow for day five of the challenge!

  1. Powerful poem. I love it so much, totally captures that feeling of emptiness. In particular, I loved these lines: ”
    My soul’s dregs on display

    Say a prayer, rinse them clean
    Read His words, pour anew
    Filling holiness, diluting dregs”

    Especially the first line!!! Love it. It captures how I feel when I’m running on my own fumes and not looking to the Lord. ❤ Praise God for His patience and goodness and love.
