If you’re looking for something to do while in lockdown or stay at home orders, try reading the Bible or writing poems, or both….you may find it quite rewarding….I do.
An Elfchen Poem is a poem which contains only eleven words and is therefore a very short poem. The first line has one word, the secind line has two words, the third line has three words, the fourth line has four words and the fifth line has one word.
And lift me
And hear my cries
But You, O Lord, are a shield [a]for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head. 4 I cried to the Lord with my voice, And He heard me from His holy hill. Selah Psalm 3:3-4
I am a Christian who believes in Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I also believe that Jesus will soon return to this earth.
I believe that if the Caterpillar can fly we too can learn to fly. We just have to attach our wings in the right place. As you know the Caterpillar uses the Milk Weed as its host, its source for food. And we too have a "Host" and He also provides us with abundant food. If we used the fuel from this food (Scripture) effectively, we too would be able to fly. Our "Minds" can be freed from all burdens and stress. We can more easily be lifted up when we allow God to be our Host. He would continually feed us. God through His word can teach us how to fly...if only in our thoughts and minds.

I love this! Poetry is not my favorite genre when it goes too long. I knew about haiku, but never heard of this. I’ll give it a try.
I also love writing Haiku, but just recently discovered the Elfchen. I also like the fact that it is very short.
Amen! Your poetry brings much comfort to my thoughts, and it complements Scripture so well. God’s peace Leola.
Thank you Richard. I love the Power of God’s word, how it can lift and comfort us, and just keep us going.
