Here is one of the poems from my “being-published” Journal Book. I am told that it will be out by Fall on Amazon and in bookstores for the Christmas shopping season ~ a great stocking stuffer!
I am a poet who writes from (metaphorically) the hillsides of King David. Most of my poetry rhymes ~ probably the musician in me that needs the even tempo of the poem’s rhythm. Nonetheless, it is my worship from the heart, so I hope that it gives you a glimpse of who I am underneath the cowboy hat and lipstick! I am a lover of the Lover of my soul, Jesus!
I would cherish your honest comments. Oh, yes, I am writing under my maiden name! Here’s a sample taste…
FLIRTING WONDERS by Rebecca Lamarche (Voigt)
Your Holy Spirit, Lord, is like the rain, refreshing deserts,
Like April dew on dampened blades of grass;
You’re like the stars that flicker in the clear skies of August
So the heavens light fond memories of those passed.
With faith steadfast in believing there are miracles to come,
You enfold my yearning heart like hand in glove,
Much like snowfall, pure and silent, when it blankets winters meadow ~
Is the mystery of Your abiding love.
Your every thought is on me every hour, every moment,
How I need the peace that’s only found in You!
So you paint the canvas of my daily life with flirting wonders
So in pleasure You might give me strength anew.
