Spring in Hell

there are no separate seasons

on the island of devils and demons

where parasites of burning sands

spill endless poison tainting lands

and fires rage on untamed

scalding and scorching

the emotionally maimed

there is no summer

no winter, no fall

no spring flowers

no seasons at all


Written for the QVV Spring Challenge to write a poem about what Spring looks like where you are.

    As my husband would say to me after reading something like Old Fear, "It's so happy!" I thoroughly enjoyed it!

  • Gosh this was so poignant and intense! Loved your poem!

  • Well-wrought! Researching something entirely unrelated today, I learned that Origines, one of the early Christian, postulated Hell as a place where people were put through trial to be redeemed, and only later, in the sixth century, did it become official doctrine to consider it a place of eternal and unredeemable torment. I know the former to be true. The fire purifies. Never trust the ideologues. Hell... ahem... don't even trust me. Just never give up on the self!
