WHICH CAME FIRST, THE RABBIT OR THE EGG? – PROMPT# 101

HAPPY EASTER!

Simply, write an Easter poem. Your piece can be faith based, as it is the biggest day in the Christian church calendar. Or it can be a secular Easter poem bringing to mind chocolate rabbits, colored eggs and such. You can pen a poem of rebirth, or a poem about coming back from a set back.

MARIE ELENA’S POEM

Egg image

Risen, Indeed!

Pondering the blood-drenched tree
There but for His mercy, me
Tear-stained face, I bow the knee
Hallelujah!  He is risen!
 
Low, for me His blood was drained
Love entombed, yet not contained
Absolution, as ordained
Hallelujah!  He is risen!

WALT’S  POEM:

THE HUNT IS ON!

Woven baskets brightly colored,
hidden in the thicket, near the picket
fence. Let the search commence.
Scurrying under the privet,
bunny rabbits head for cover
and over by the gate the children
take a peek for the prizes they seek.
Services have concluded but the thrill
has not eluded these excited souls.
The hunt is on, let the fun begin!
