It is that time again friends. NaPoWriMo 2015 – 30 poems in 30 days! I love this challenge!
Here is todays challenge:
And now, our (as always, optional) prompt, provided to us by NaPoWriMo participant Carla Jones. Today, I challenge you to take your gaze upward, and write a poem about the stars. You may find inspiration in this website that lists constellations, while also providing information on the myths associated with each one, as well as other salient information. Your poem could be informed by those myths or historical details, by the shapes or names of the constellations, or by childhood memories of seeing them. Any form or style will do.
CALLED BY THE MAKER OF THE STARS
~Copyright 2015 Diana Rasmussen~
You knew me before I was born
You knit me together in the womb
You knew the paths I would take
You called me out of darkness into light
You renew my mind and my heart
You know my ways and my name
Called by the Maker of the Stars
Lift up your eyes and see. Who has made these stars? It is the One Who leads them out by number. He calls them all by name. Because of the greatness of His strength, and because He is strong in power, not one of them is missing. (Isaiah 40:26 NLV)
