The kabbalistic home

K is for Kabbalistic

Echoing steps at dawn: stories of darkness 

faint whispers of: demons retreating,

a vortex sweeping through: leaving behind a trail of destruction.

Is there hope in Zion?: who shall save us?

The kabbalistic home rages: a crimson hue adorns the skies

lambs and wolves alike are slain: no soul is safe.

Is there no hope in Zion?

Open the pages: look within,

therein lies hope: banish the resounding fear

The throne of secrets: and covert shadows 

shall  be destroyed:  with the truth

There is hope in Zion: cloaked in the innocence and bravery of a suckling babe.

This was written as a cleave poem, which has three poems within; one on the left, one on the right and the entire piece as one. Don’t know if it worked, please let me know.

Written for Friday fictioneers a writing challenge hosted by Rochelle and A to Z challenge. The picture was provided by Kent Bonham and the task is to write a 100 words story inspired by it.

  1. I enjoyed reading this. I wasn’t familiar with the cleave poem so after your explanation I went back and read the left/right poems separately. It certainly worked for me and it has presented me with a challenge to have a go myself at writing a cleave poem.

  2. Excellent Cleave! I was thinking of the answer to where hope may be found…but I believe you already know that one. Also, this reminds me a bit of the book of Job.

  3. I never heard of a cleave poem before this, but you did a great job with it. Making the bold and italic lines made it easy to read. 🙂
