This is my blog (now there is a surprise!). I will be sticking in it poetry, prose, random musings, things that take my fancy and more than likely lots of pictures of cats. I hope you find something to amuse and/or interest you here.

Dodge's prompt for Thursday, a day late!

Today's Prompt is Crapsey cinquains (Reverse+butterfly+mirror)

We are trying something new and are not sure of how well it can be done, so for today's prompt you may choose to do one or all of the following Crapsey cinquains ...

Right, thanks JL.  Make it easy for us why don't you? (lol).

Since it is Easter, how about this?

retelling the Easter story
of life everlasting
the redemption
of man.

when a man died
a religion began
as sacred blood fell from the cross
He died
and rose again in His glory
son of man, Son of God
the redeemer

He died
in agony
crying to His Father
pleading for the Lord’s forgiveness
for us.

He came forth from the rocky tomb
bearing God’s forgiveness
redeeming us


  1. First off "thanks" for being my editor. Your comments are appreciated. Your piece captures the Easter story. Good job!

  2. I think it's great. I generally like cinquains better than haiku and this one's a really nice example of why.

  3. lovely.
    welcome and have fun...

  4. poignant, and just the right time for the cinquains too :)

    My Post Is Here

  5. Very nice! Easter blessings to you!

  6. Truly poignant and beautiful, one quibble though, Christianity in its true form is not a religion, it is a relationship. I'm a Christian but I'd never call myself "religious", going down to the pub and having two pints of the same every friday night without fail is religious, a relationship with the all mighty is not. Other than that, a brilliant poem.
    The Lonely Recluse.

  7. Nice way to pay homage to the religious beliefs of history. Enjoy the rally!

  8. Great poem about Easter! Enjoyed it.

  9. WOW Penny !! well done !
    And you are welcome by the way...LOL
    you make it look easy !

  10. Sharp and to the point. I like your name by the way. :)

    Can I ask you where you got the prompt from? I don't see the prompting linking anywhere and a crapsey cinquain sort of urges me to check that group or website.
