moving still

abandon all arms
devouring, being devoured
surety founded on trust

“Abyssus abyssum invocate”

 

**********************************************************************************

In response to:

1) Amreen’s PTWWW “Be Inspired” Weekly Challenge #26 which was to write a ‘Clarity Pyramid’ by Jerry P. Quinn (I cheated in the last line, one extra syllable. Oh well, rules were made to be broken!) and

2) We Drink Because We’re Poets’ Poetry Prompt #9 – Dead Language. The task was to write a poem including a Latin Proverb. I chose ‘Abyssus abyssum invocat’, translated ‘deep calls to deep’ as it reminded me of one of my favourite psalms (psalm 42).
