Warrior Poet Circle: Heartstrings

Warrior Poet CircleWelcome to the 4th edition of the Warrior Poet Circle (if you need a refresher on what this is, click here). Time to pull up a seat, gather around the fire, and pour out our verses.

Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone. This time our theme is Heartstrings and I’m sure this will be interesting!

If you have a contribution, add it below.  Can’t wait to read what you’ve written.

For next time (Monday, February 28), we’ll use the prompt, Hidden in God, as our inspiration.



Anatomy of Awakening

Heart of stone
Unpliable, immovable
Set and rigid
Self-determined, self-reliant
Selfish and Self-righteous

Meets God of grace
Glorious, Majestic
Spirit and Truth
Sustainer, Restorer
Breath of life and peace

Gives heart of flesh
Renewed, refreshed
Swaying and moving
Rhythmic, melodic
Stringed and waiting

Invites song of praise
Humble, confident
Reveling and passionate
Terrestrial-started, Heaven-reaching
Joy-filled and awe-inspired

  5. Jason, Just got caught up to speed with what the Warrior Poet Circle was. I’m good now. Seriously, did you write this? Incredible imagery, my friend.

    Especially like this:
    “Meets God of grace
    Glorious, Majestic
    Spirit and Truth
    Sustainer, Restorer
    Breath of life and peace”
