Light Motiffs Three Things Challenge PL68 – Today’s prompt: black, hotel, cheater.
Every Wednesday morning after Bible study
the wives of the church leadership get together
at the local but for the “very elite only” hotel
for their weekly tea, gossip and sin session
where they talk about the sinners who don’t
measure up to their superior religious ways.
The requirement to join if worthy to be in their presence
was to take a vow to always drink only organic tea
with an absolute must to forever omit the refined sugar
drinking the tea with an all natural eloquence
proclaiming that the reason for this unusual vow
is to maintain what they call their “dainty figures.”
Now, there was a new wealthy member of the church
who appeared to meet the high standards required to
be invited to come and join their tea drinking clique.
At first all was going well then the ladies noticed
that the new woman’s figure was not remaining “dainty”
so they decided to find out what was going on…
it turns out she has been a cheater with a dark secret
she’s been drinking non-organic tea swimming in
an ocean of refined sugar every day at home!
When the ladies saw this they took a picture of her
and posted it on the church’s Facebook page, and then,
they of course black balled her from the tea drinking clique!
The poor woman had to spend every single Sunday living
down the humiliation of her sugar-tea addiction.
Oh the sin of it all!

Today’s prompt: shepherd, flame, comma
Every Wednesday I post a photo and You respond with something CREATIVE.
Blessed is this broken road
I have walked for untold years
that carries in it a multitude of tears
so many pieces of my heart shattered
and scattered along the way until comma…
the Shepherd’s flame welded this heart
back together and gave it a new start
yes, it still endures the cuts that bleed
but scars are the jewels of this heart’s creed
that now travels the straight, solid road
where peace and tender lovingkindness is bestowed.

Today’s word and image:
It was our darkest hour of our marriage
for five years we had been saving and planning
our very special midnight rendezvous of sweet lovin’
to celebrate our twentieth wedding anniversary

The resort we chose was well known for all its
tropical delights including everyday warm sunshine
but when we arrived there and settled in…
suddenly, we were blasted with the
frigid air of an unexpected freak Winter storm
killing all the anticipation we had built up over the five years
and alas, we had to enact the application of
sweatshirts and sweatpants because
this tropical resort has no heaters installed in the rooms
which left us completely sweetless at midnight!

Today’s prompt: tears, grass, hologram
She enters through the gate
to her secret place in the grass meadow
not suspecting today would come to her
a different long awaited fate
as she does every other day
she laid down on her back
and looked to the clouds display
to tell her their daily story
through their vast shapes
suddenly, a fright came to her
as a hologram appeared in the cloudscape
reflecting the true condition of her heart
a pain that cut to deep to face at the time
that her denial would help to thwart
but alas, she could no longer
run or hide for the lingering pain
refused to be silent…
and by this she could not restrain
the tears that had to be wept
for the agony, she had, so long sidestepped.

Today’s prompt: charisma, guacamole, rose
Guacamole love smooth and creamy
with its bites of charisma’s spice
and the sumptuous fragrance
of a deep crimson Munstead Wood rose
with its thorns of passion that prick
the heart and cause it to bleed pain’s tears
for there is no true love
without the pain of caring
and if one has found this
cherish it forever
tis a rare and unique love
lasting and enduring through all time
instead of weak and fleeting
it is not selfish but instead
loves another more than itself
and never lets go.
