Exhale The Madness

In Response To:

Word Of The Day Challenge – Illusion

Your Daily Word Prompt – Linger – January 10, 2021

When illusions linger

they shadow the astute vision

truth becomes distorted

lost in a mirage of denial

the mind going in circles…

close eyes…be still…breathe

inhale an Ancient Wisdom

exhale the madness

embrace Peace to

reign the soul

Untouched Peace

Resting in a place

not seen by open eyes

but by a vision of

the Soul where

air is fresh and

pure to breathe

hearing only nature’s

soothing melody and

her emerald beauty

fills the mind with

peace that is untouched

Gift Of Peace

The Haunted Wordsmith Elemental Challenge & Opposites Attract Challenge April 1

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 prompt: wicked

Antonyms: decent, ethical, good, honest, honorable, just, moral, right, righteous, sublime, upright, virtuous

For the Elemental Challenge, we will explore one of the four elements: air, earth, water, fire.  This week’s focus is AIR.  Simply use the word and/or image provided and be inspired by the natural element.

Today’s word and image:  sweet

Sweet is the air to breathe

around nature’s blossoms

wicked it would be to not

stop but for a moment

and inhale the sublime

beauty given so freely

without conditions…instead

the honorable desire is that

one enjoys the virtuous aroma

of the Creator’s gift of peace.
