CHRISTIAN POEMS

cross

Easter: Just for me?

I have often heard the following questions.  In fact I have asked them myself………. What has Easter got to do with me? Why is it relevant? Why did Jesus have to die anyway? This poem is the answer to my own questioning.  I hope that it makes Easter more relevant to you too.

Striving for Success

    This free verse poem is full of word play, metaphors and strong verbs.  I usually prefer to write with rhyme and rhythm but this is one of those occasions when I felt that free verse would be better as it gave so much freedom to play with words that have two different meanings.

Gods creation

God’s Precious Creation

Christian Poetry This inspirational Christian poem reminds us that we are all precious and loved and, despite what we often tell ourselves, are a beautiful creation.     You gave God His own precious moment When He gave you breathe, life and soul. It was your uniqueness in nature And being that made His life […]

A Topsy Turvy World

      This zany poem is full of all my imaginative wonderings about the world and how it was designed, and includes lots of alliteration.  Try redesigning the world yourself, and think through all of the consequences; it’s a fun exercise!

Incy Wincy Alternative

Incy Wincy Spider (Alternative Nursery Rhyme)

    Incy Wincy spider climbed up the spout Down came a paper, and gave him such a clout Out came the raindrops and washed him down the drain Now Incy Wincy spider will not be back again.

mary had a little lamb alternative

Mary and her Little Lamb

This alternative story of Mary and her little lamb includes the original simile and a new metaphor.  Other than that, is just a silly poem using the same rhyme and rhythm pattern, but telling an entirely different story with not quite the same pleasantries as the original nursery rhyme!

A Bitter Pill

      This is just a fun rhyme and rhythm story poem, including exaggeration for effect (hyperbole), with one word play phrase too.  It is based on a true scenario that anyone who has ever owned a tom cat will probably be able to relate to!
