The Christian Labyrinth

Christian Poetry   A Christian poem relating the Christian journey to a labyrinth.   I started a labyrinth journey The day when I noticed my God. I watched other Christians first though, And at times their behaviour was odd.

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!

Don’t Give Up

This Christian poem was written as an encouragement for a young girl who had attempted suicide at just 17 years old.   Today, a tear hit my pillow, A heaven-sent one from above Falling, as God held His arms out Longing to show you His love.

My Bogie Collection

This disgusting (sorry!) list poem includes lots of moments of alliteration, but is too disgusting a topic for my daughter to allow me to read aloud!  For some reason, she thinks that I’m immature!

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!

Food

Healthy Food

The humour in this silly healthy food poem is in the use of lots of word play and hyperbole (exaggeration for effect), with the occasional metaphor, and a tiny amount of alliteration.
