Sue Vincent Thursday Photo Prompt:  Glow #writephoto – Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose.

Amongst the glow

of a pre-risen Sun

pockets of stillness

can be found for a

soul to rest and be

nourished in contentment

to eschew and intercept the

potential of emptiness.

The Visit

Written In Response To:

Word Of The Day Challenge – Zone

Reena’s Exploration Challenge # 101 – Moving on to this week, here’s an image prompt….

As a grown man looks into the conical zone

of his mind’s memories captured with silhouetted shadows

filled with the pain of his early childhood traumas

he remembers a frozen moment in time as a young boy

seeking purpose and waiting for an answer, he 

stood still holding the lamp switch and it was then

that he heard from two angels appearing as airplanes

and they began to speak this message to him 

that would forever change his life:


“In order for you to fly My son, you must turn on the light

to chase away the dark shadows of your past, and move forward 

into the plan and promises I have waiting for you.” 


The boy then, although fearful turned on the light as he

was instructed and the shadows were chased away and he

filled with the faith to move forward into the plan and promises 

to live beyond what his imagination could ever imagine!

Behind The Ornate Door

Written In Response To:

Word Of The Day Challenge – Lackluster

Your Daily Word Prompt – Lies – April 27, 2019

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #24 – Every Wednesday I post a photo.  You respond with something CREATIVE.

Behind the intricate ornate door

is a gathering of souls who hold the key

there is but one requirement to enter

a soul must walk in the light of Truth

if a soul walks in the dark of lies it then

becomes lackluster and cannot enter

because Truth is the key that opens the door

to a soul’s rest and rejuvenation…

for one can become weary standing for Truth

in a world so torn apart by rivalry, anger, and hatred

it is a privileged vocation to be signs of a

love that can bridge all divisions and heal all wounds.

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!

The Open Door

MLMM Tale Weaver #169 – Through The Portal

The Open Door

One day as I went for my usual walk in the forest, a very strange thing happened to me. Instead of walking on my regular path I was supernaturally led to another path I had never walked before. I stopped when I saw this open door. I looked beyond the open door and saw this beautiful, warm, Golden Light calling me. I also noticed a dove sitting upon the frame of the door. I sensed it was no ordinary dove but a Guiding Spirit waiting to lead me into a new and different realm. So I surrendered to the Guiding Spirit’s invitation to cross through the portal.

When we arrived the Golden Light…
was so warm and kind
my soul filled with a peace divine
there was no sense of time
Oh what a new freedom sublime
here there are no more fears
and dry is the soul’s well of tears
there is no more pain, sorrow or anguish
no more diseases to cause one to languish
there is no more darkness and cruelty
nor spiritual and physical brutality
instead, one is able to know tranquil rest
and with the Greatest Love one is bequest…

Then the Guiding Spirit began to lead me back through the portal to this earth. I then became so saddened for I did not want to leave this place that was too good to be true and all I had known for the short time I was there. But the Guiding Spirit sensed what I was feeling for I was too overwhelmed to speak. It was then the Guiding Spirit assured me that what I experienced is an eternal promise seared into my heart and will always remain true for all time.
