With words and phrases spelled out well.
Carefully placed with structure set.
But still a judge will hold the bet.
To tell us whether good or bad.
It brings a smile or leaves them sad.
The style they like and score it high.
The style they hate and say good bye.
The writer’s skill is relative.
In wrong hands is like a sieve.
Meaning comes in tidbits sweet.
Some will see them as a treat.
Others cannot get the flow.
Makes no sense to them, you know.
Their review reflects defeat.
With buried words beneath their feet.
I love the written Word of God.
On those words most men have trod.
They make no sense, some will say.
Still others find the light of day.
The writers of the Bible old.
Were correct in what was told.
King James may write to please one kind.
To others, N I V’s the sign.
What you expect, from what you read.
Could depend on inner need.
Or maybe just the mood you’re in.
How was your day, how have you been?
So when I write; a grain of salt.
If it’s not liked, where is the fault?
Encouragement placed on my shoulder.
“Is In The Eye Of The Beholder.”
