Meditation of My Heart

My heart holds the treasure of liberty
By one who chose to set me free
No more sorrow or despair
Only joy and humble prayer.
Christ is the true foundation
And the calmness
of my
Meditation.

Learning, watching, pondering the way
As rains of righteousness pour this day.
Understanding brightens my soul
of the pierced-hand that made me whole.
I look to the time
of blissful
Celebration.

My eyes were opened to believe
My mind attentive to receive
Faith and truth; sweet contemplation
Drawing me closer
in quiet
Concentration.


Meditation of my heart
Helps me to reflect in part
On Godís gleaming city of Light
Where love is gliding
Forever in flight
In the realm of
His royal
Congregation.

My faithful pen shall move in publishing
This solemn testimony for my King.
I serve among his growing nation
With the greatest assurance
And firm
Dedication.

I really liked the sentiments shared in the first stanza. The "AB" pattern was difficult to detect. Flow was very nice. :)

There were many things that I liked about your poetry. Your centering of it and careful planning were very effective for me. Thanks

A very nice flow to this and the form only adds to it. Well done.

The form of this poem is very visually appealing :) I have a question. How did you format the poem so that it would stay shaped when you submitted it? I would really like to know since I have a shape poem I'd like to post on FW but I can't get it to display without messing up. Please send me a private message and tell me how you got it to work! Thanks!
