A Creative Response

A Creative Response to the Advent Pause

Miranda suggested that we wrote acrostic poems, using the format below.  Here are some examples from the evening.

Pause Acrostic

Personal experience is
Awful for some, while others
Unused to such
Suffering are left
Exhausted by their words.

Please
Ask
Us for help - we don't know how to
Support you in your
Extremity

Put your anxious thoughts on hold
Albeit for a short while
Until the worries press in again
So you know there are no answers now
Even if you pause for an indeterminate time.

Peace
Always there
Under and over the waves which
Sweep in
Eternally. Just dive beneath....

Pausing 
Allows
Us to
Stop.  Full stop – and a moment to
Explore and sense beyond ourselves
