Imago Dei (Image of God)
I've entered a religious poetry contest that I saw in my local newspaper. I hope to win at least an honorable mention. I've never entered a writing contest before, so wish me luck. Here is the masterpiece of my mind.
Imago Dei (Image of God)
I walk, I breathe, I love, I smile,
I wear my hair in an ethnic style.
Skin of ebony, eyes of chocolate brown,
No earthly creature notices my heavenly crown.
A cross I carry on my scar-free back,
My Lord wholly divine, wholly human, nothing He lacks.
Descendant of Adam, cursed by mother Eve,
Three daughters I bore, each birthing I did grieve.
I am salt, I am light, a princess among kings,
My Father's glory contained within me and all Christian things.
I stumble, I sigh, I despair, I sometimes even cry,
Yet remains the Image of God in the mirror of my eye.
How perfect, how complete I am, in who I proclaim,
"Gift of God," heaven hears, with each voicing of my name.
I am the creature molded daily by the craftman called "Creator,"
I look towards my "Example" and strive to be "Imitator."
I am woman, mother, sister, and yes even wife,
I am that vessel which God lovingly breathed into; life.
It is so simple, promises of love forever written in time to stay,
I am imperfect, yet perfection of God, I am Imago Dei.
I really enjoyed writing it and will update everyone of what becomes of it. It may be included in an anthology (which I know that is what someone is doing). I wouldn't mind doing an anthology on gardening poetry. If there were enough of people interested. I might look into doing it in my local newspaper.
Any advice or suggestions on the topic? Would appreciate any comments.

I wish you the best of luck! Or should I say, break a leg?
I wish you luck too D2D. Your poem is an outstanding piece of work. When will you know the results of the writing contest?
Mmm, I'd love to hear this put to music, there are a couple of singers I could just hear bringing it alive. Beautiful.
You all are so sweet. You build up my confidence in everything I have brought to your attention. I really appreciate being a part of the stew. It is an oasis in a world filled with awful news everywhere.
That is beautifully said (err written) D2D.
Good luck D2D ;)
I agree with you - a woman's place is where ever she wants to be. I totally envy your meeting Hillary. She is without a doubt the guttsiest lady I've ever seen.Good luck with your sunflower. The biggest one I grew was outside my kitchen. One day I saw it dancing back and forth. When I looked again it had a passenger. A squirrel had climbed it and was happily munching on the seeds.
