The Cloaked Monk’s,, MarchChallenge prompt for this, the final day: New World.

While perusing poetry sites yesterday, I came across one,, which asked the intriguing question, “What would Shakespeare say?” It is difficult to answer what Shakespeare would say, but it is a good bet he would say it in blank verse: unrhymed iambic pentameter. That is how he wrote most of his plays.

With today being the last day of the Cloaked Monk’s March Challenge, I thought I would close it out in blank verse.

(Personal note to the Cloaked Monk: This one is dedicated to you and the non-poem related work you do. Thank you.)

heaven's door

Each life is faced with rampant, rapid change.
In constant flux, relationships unwind
while health and jobs adjust to creeping age.
The future of this life lies right at hand.

The door into a bright new world awaits
for those who look beyond the sight of man.
Our time of walking on this ball of mud,
will change into a walk on golden sand.

Until the grace of that upcoming day,
each door that opens wide shall be embraced.
For deep within, God’s promise may be found;
no single precious day should be of waste.
