The Twisted Road

Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge #266 – Twisted & Cross

Previous Pinner- Salvador Dali - I really like how the artist manages to depict the ever lasting change of the earth through designing a painting of a mountain/cliff with the structure of a human face. He does this to reference how much humans have changed and redesigned the world we live in to suit our ways of life.

the twisted road walked

will cross mind into darkness

death of heart turned stone

And those who love it and indulge it will eat its fruit

In The Down

Written In Response To:

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #46:  RESPONSE – For this week’s challenge, I thought it might be interesting to create a post in response to someone else’s work.

In The Down

Many year ago

I used to keep

people down

with me so I

would not be lonely

it made me feel

falsely superior to them

I was jealous because

I could see their

possibility to soar

and I didn’t want

to be left behind

though I was never able

to hold them down

for very long…

*

But one day, Grace

came to meet me

in the down, empty

death in my soul

that I may soar

to lift others up

instead of hold them

and myself down.

The Haunted Wordsmith Genre Writing Challenge – April 20, 2019

The purpose of this challenge is to push ourselves to dip our toes in other genres than we normally write in. The form of writing is up to you. 

Today’s genre and image: Haunting.

Where love seemed to live

truth became reality

secrets no longer hidden

 

Haunting is this house

vicious crimes were committed

its soul erupted in death

The Death Of Not Letting Go

NaPoWriMo Challenge 2019 – Day 18

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #83

PROMPT:

Free Verse Revolution April Writing Prompt #3 – The Things Left Behind

April’s Theme: Death

IMG_2290.PNG

When spiritual felonies are committed against us

the rape of the soul, the murder of our spirit

things that seem completely impossible to forgive

they can fester so deep with the core where light lives

manifesting into life-size weighted puppets

hanging from the ceiling of the soul

turning it upside down from light to darkness

causing a slow and painful death of spirit

when forgiveness is not the chosen way

and these puppets and their shadows

are not, through forgiveness, the things left behind.

The Haunted Wordsmith Elemental Writing Challenge April 11, 2019

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

Today’s prompt and image: smoking:

This fire that burns around

the black hole of my soul

incinerates the aches and pains of

a family love I never came to know

turning them into the death of ashes and dust

to be left in the abyss of space and time

never to return to me again leaving

only the sweet smoking incense of healing

an aroma that fulfills a vacated ache knowing

there is now only a peace from what never was.

Over The Years

Your Daily Word Prompt – Drench – April 3, 2019

NaPoWriMo2019 – Day 3 – Write something that involves a story or action that unfolds over an appreciable length of time.

Twittering Tales #130 April 3, 2019 –  Each Tuesday I will provide a photo prompt. Your mission, if you choose to accept the challenge, is to tell a story in 280 characters or less.

Photo Prompt:

Over the years…

there were so many things

I did want to say

but never did because

I did not know the Love

that lives in my heart today

~ * ~

And then there were the things

I didn’t want to say

but alas, I did say them

whilst drenched in the midst of

the pain and anger of words

spoken that cut my heart

to bleed and speak its revenge

~ * ~

Then, little by little, step by step

through the years Grace divine

has healed the wounds refine

and blessed this tongue to speak kind

to no longer hurt the broken who

lash out as a shield of protection

instead pour out healing’s intention

so that they may drink from

the Julep of forgiven.

Proverbs 18:21 (AMPC)

21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life].
