Eye of the needle

Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. Matthew 19:23-26

Everyman rapture,
to have and have not
all the colors of darkness

Lucifer’s shadow.

Never let me go
I’ll keep you safe.

Today I host spine poetry at dVerse. Go to your bookshelf and find the poetry of titles.

  1. A very interesting found poem Bjorn. I admire how you almost used most of the titles. It is easy to blinded after all.

  2. I like the contrast between the fear and darkness of the first and second stanzas and the safety and comfort of the final lines, Björn.

  3. Ooh, what a clever idea. Unfortunately, all I have on hand would like create a poem of vice or glutton consisting solely of romance novels or cookbooks!

  4. ALL THE COLORS OF DARKNESS sounds intriguing; great prompt. Found poetry leads to unknown landscapes; what fun.

  5. There is a lot out there to be blinded by and tempted with. The last two lines are comforting as if they are saying despite all that… Very nice.

    all the colors of darkness
    A great title. It conjures a picture kaleidoscopic in nature yet mysterious in many ways.


  7. “petrified
    all the colors of darkness” – These work so well together.
    This is a great prompt to play with reordering phrases. Thanks for offering it up.

  8. Great poem, I just wish and thought that the picture of the books used was needed to be included. Not that I’d much understand Swedish titles.. 🙂 Also, great excerpt from the bible, one of my favorites, right after “no man shall cut their hair nor beard”. But nice wordscape, Lightbringers shadow, blinding, colours of the darkness…

  9. I love this prompt and love looking at all these book shelves. Your lines meshed and made sense, which was hard for me to do. Thanks! I will make the rounds sometime tonight and into tomorrow.

  10. Yours, a hard act to follow. I’m getting some new novel ideas. Need them now more than ever. Never Let Me Go was so beautifully written, but was a distressing subject.

  11. I sense some some sarcasm in the last two lines. Your message comes through. Such a fun prompt. Would be fun to do it again.

  12. An interesting list. This group is really true during this time of uncertainty…. ( Being without puts fear in everyone! )
