Dazzle me.
Sizzle your spark. Beam
a light for
all to see
all that is good in this world,
dying and reborn.


For imperfect prose.

Nice tight poem – tough style too…and best of all great theme.

What a great prayer! All that is good in this world… is so much.

A Spanish haiku – brilliant – and the discipline!!! Harder than containing a tweet to 140 characters or less. And the message – I heart the message. This was awesome, smiling from ear to ear. Thank you. God Bless and keep you and all of yours.

“Dazzle me” – what a bold prayer, like something David would have dared to ask! I like it.

Thanks for introducing me to an unfamiliar form, too. Will have to play with that myself. I’m so glad you visited crumbs and took time to comment so I would follow you here.

God bless you!

I see your gift, and am blessed by it, to be able to wrestle a thought into a structured format like this. And still have it overflow its edges. Just like the sun…
