WHICH CAME FIRST, THE RABBIT OR THE EGG? – PROMPT# 101
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
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! © Copyright Marie Elena – 2013 Image credit: http://joyknitcrochet.blogspot.com/2011/01/egg-cracking-expert.html
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!
