Broken and heal are the word prompts for Days 15 and 16 of #write28days. Since the words work well together, I thought I’d combine them into one post. As I thought about the words, some scriptures and articles I read recently, a poem began to come together. Each stanza is written in the form of haiku.
Broken Spirits Heal
Sad feelings come as
Broken dreams and promises
Clamor in our thoughts
Almost in despair
Our heads bow down in sorrow
Unsure what to do
Good friends come beside
Acknowledging grief and pain
Vowing their support
Broken spirits heal
As pleasant words are spoken
Bringing rays of hope
No Simple Solutions
While I know there is not a simple solution to a broken spirit, it really does help to have friends who understand.
Sometimes you need someone who will sit beside you, acknowledging your pain and allow you to process it. Everyone has some kind of pain or struggle, though no one knows exactly what someone else is going through. We may not know how to help, but we can be there for each other.
A joyful heart is good medicine,
but a broken spirit dries up the bones.
Pleasant words are a honeycomb,
Sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
