Alphabe-Thursday: The Letter V

Jenny Matlock

Wearing Vestments the Vicar raises the Vessel for all to Venerate.


Vast my hopes; Vigorous my prayers...longing for Virtue.

Veritas.

But I Vacillate, bearing Vestiges of sin (Venial they may be)
staining my soul.

Veritas.

Vital is this Visible sacrament...participating of my own Volition.

Veritas.

Vanquish the Vipor's Venom Vexing my spirit.

Veritas.

A Visceral Victory to be won.

Veritas.

Vindication in the Vestibule.

You were able to use so many v's in the very wonderful poem.

Nessa said...

I love the way you used the v words. And Veritas gets very little press now a days.

Cynthia@RunningWithLetters said...

I'm with Nessa--we need more veritas! What a meaningful piece you wove, with just the humble "v" with which to work!

Brian Miller said...

v words are fun to say...
leave it at the door...

Do you ever tire of me telling you that you're a genius?

Every week I am blown away!

jingle said...

nice job!

Melissa B. said...

My students have a hard time pronouncing the abbreviation "vs," as in Marbury vs. Madison. They want to say "verse" instead of "versus." Drives me crazy, veritably!

Tina said...

Isn't it nice to know all is forgiven in His blood? A genius way of showing it, my friend. Genius.

Steven Anthony said...

Bravo!! Just when I think you can't get any better you do. This was just amazing. Great V words and post.

Julie Schuler said...

pfft, venial?! You need to aim higher. I like to get my stuff real dirty before I put it in the washing machine!
Just being silly. I think it's grand. Veritas. Truth is Beauty.

Thank you for being a kind friend.

Sarah said...

Polly, you never cease to amaze me. Vertias - I had to click on the link. :-)
Great post! ~ Sarah

Cheryl D. said...

Happy V-Day! Great use of V! I can't wait to see what you do with "X" ! LOL

Anna said...

I don't know how you do it! Beautiful poem! I am lucky if I get most words spelled right!

I am a child of my time, with popular culture on the brain. When I hear the word 'veritas', I think of Professor Severus Snape (from the Harry Potter novels and films), and his tiny vile of 'veritas-serum' that makes anyone tell the truth.

I did not try to post a poem this time. But who knows, maybe I'll do it when Jenny has the colours of the rainbow after the letter Z.

I agree with Chryl: Your poetry inspires!

Take care!
