Your Daily Word Prompt – Initiative – April, 21, 2019

The Haunted Wordsmith Opposites Attract & Elemental Writing Challenges

Opposites Attract: Today’s word: obscure – Antonyms: accessible, clear, nonambiguous, obvious, plain, unambiguous, unequivocal.

Elemental Writing: This week’s focus is Earth.  Today’s prompt and image: destructive.

Destructive are the ways of mankind

upon this the Creator’s beautiful earth

where once stood a building enshrined

has become ugly wrought into dearth

obscure was the inspiration in planning

obvious not one took the initiative to

build upon the indestructible strength of

the Chief Cornerstone…

and what once was shall lay forever lone.

Nature's Bouquet

Golden hues from up above
snow capped mountains topped with love

The brilliance of green foliage
surrounding a blue lineage

Purple, pink, and orange shades abound
only on earth are these colors found

Beauty to melt the hearts of all mankind
the Master Gardner’s green thumb now defined

Each flower has a uniqueness of its own
by sight and scent His aroma is made known
