Rain above flushes the earth below
Cleansing the land for new growth
Heat From inside rises and flushes through my pores
Cleansing the way for new growth
Some want skin flush with skin
Without first flushing out what’s in
It doesn’t work that way

dversepoets.com Quadrille Monday, a poem of exactly 44 words excluding the title.the prompt word is “flush”




About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    A purifying quadrille, Mary, that is refreshing but also wistful with longing for ‘skin flush with skin’.

    On rainy days my mother used to say “God’s doing his laundry!”. Your beautiful words reminded me of that.

    I like the way you incorporated so many uses of the word. A good message in the end as well.
