Three Days: Weekly Writing Prompt #29

Time limitations have kept me from joining in on the SECRET KEEPER’S WEEKLY WRITING PROMPTS THESE LAST WEEKS.

I have intentionally put aside time this week to join in. You can see all of this week’s contributions by clicking the underlined link above.

This week’s five prompt words are: | WEB | LOST | BLACK | SCRATCH | LOCK |

What follows is a Shadorma in honor of the Passion Week

Shadorma (3 – 5 – 3 – 3 – 7 – 5)
six lines – no rhymes – multiple stanzas [your choice] – just follow meter


Three Days

by JE Lillie

Day One: Death.

Scratch rejoiced as Christ

Succumbed on

Man’s black cross

Had love lost the day? Night reigned.

Captivity wept.

Day Two: Chained.

Scratch locked Christ in Hell.

His web wound

Bound Christ tight.

Jesus smiled and love woke life

In Hell. Demons shook.

Then He Rose.

Scratch’s keys were lost

Captive hearts

Shouted loud.

As Christ led through the black night

To third day freedom.
