Sue has given us a stunning picture to work with this week. You can check out her challenge here:
For visually challenged writers, the image shows a female figure, translucent and rainbow coloured, emerging from mist in which many shapes move. She is holding a bowl. Before her are strange blue pinnacles… which could be close or distant, spires, ice or… something else…
Why are you afraid?
I come to you from the shadows
Offering you peace.
There is no malice in my thoughts,
Nothing to fear……
Unless you do not want my gift.
It is your life as I see it,
Past, present and future,
Do you not want to see?
Come, take the cup from my hand
It cannot harm you,
It is yours, it is You,
Your essence, your being.
Why do you shrink from me?
I am no devil holding your soul captive.
Maybe it is your conscience.
Drink and you will be free:
There is no need to fear me.
The past has gone,
The present is now and this gift:
The future is not set,
There is time to change your destiny.
