For this challenge, I provide one word and a list of its antonyms. The challenge is to use the prompt word AND one (or more) of its antonyms in some form of writing (or creative work).
Today’s Word: earnestness
Antonyms: lightheartedness – frivolity – levity
Sometimes the seriousness
of spiritual maturing
can bring on circumstances
that seem unfair or even cruel
striking the soul with such
anger, pain and grieving unending
and with earnestness one can seek
to try and understand all the “whys”
but often these things remain
a great mystery never to be unveiled
this is when the heart needs to
let go and dance in lightheartedness
through the fields of Spring
so the soul can once again sing
and know one day the Light
will shine upon all things
mysterious and healing will…
become whole and complete.
