Mystical Beauty

NaPoWriMo Challenge 2019 – Day 23

The Haunted Wordsmith Opposites Attract & Elemental Writing Challenges

Opposites Attract:  Today’s prompt: retain – Antonyms: give up, hand over, release, relinquish, surrender, yield.

Elemental Challenge:  This week’s focus is Earth.  Today’s prompt and image: mystical.

Although the earth is thousands of years old

worn, torn, damaged, and deteriorating

even so, by God’s grace, there are jewels to find

that still retain their mystical beauty

to be enamored, cherished, held sacred and holy

a reason to be grateful and rejoice for these free gifts

remembering to relinquish not our reverent admiration!
