What Are You, Gold-Gray-Blue?

Write a “what you are” poem, or…
Write a “what you are not” poem. 

Walk, stroll, dash, loll
Hurry-scurry, amble
Life is more than dust-cajole
In a soul-shod scramble

Sit, stand, heed, command
Lead-and-follow mingling
Time is more than ether sand
Poured through thought and feeling

Eat, drink, swim, sink
War of More imploring
Soon the noon of it lies pink
On earth's west-brink shoring

Wake, sleep, toss, keep
Dark and daylight duel
In the heap-o-living, love
Here and there a jewel

You are not some futile jot
Dashed upon Time's pages
Nor a soon forgotten dot
Lost among the ages
 
Hope, pray, for today
With its trial-error
Is God's gifted blue-gold-gray
Leading to Forever

Janet Martin

Our Eternal Dwelling
9Therefore we also have as our ambition, whether at home or absent, to be pleasing to Him. 10For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. 2 Cor.5:10

Wake, sleep, toss, keep
Dark and daylight duel
In the heap-o-living, love
Here and there a jewel
