Lucifer lost his battle, poetry challenge, Frank Atanacia's, April's poetry month

Updated on April 13, 2014
always exploring profile image

I am a writer of poetry and fiction. I especially love flash fiction. My name is Ruby, and I live in Southern Illinois. I am a retired R.N.

The church bells chimed once again.

Lucifer lost his lustful battle when April's spirit lifted, angels rejoicing in heaven, God's loving arms awaiting

Lucifer's pulsating tongue darkened, crimson red, choking blood, eyes bulging. The sting of death deepening

The church bells chimed once again

The old gospel hymnal echoed throughout the land

The flames of darkness flickered, the wispy smoke scattered into the tempest lake of fire

The wind whipped forming a funnel, clearing all debris left by the evil liar.


This is in response to, Lucifer-The Bearer of Unearthly Light-- Lucifer's Desires by Alicia C

      I wasn't going to read any hubs this fine Sunday, but once your name popped up I just had to...and I was not disappointed. I agree with Cardisa...very graphic and suspenseful. Nicely done, Ruby!

      Hello Cardisa, Frank Atanacio wrote a poem challenging all to write a poem, go to one of the poems listed above and you will see his picture, click on his name and you will see his poem. There has been a lot of poems written from his challenge. I'll be waiting for yours. Thank you for a compelling comment...I hope more hubbers will read your two hubs on racism written yesterday, they were spot on....

      Believe and ye shall conquer - and you sure did it! That is one heck of a verse Ruby. That was thought. Mine was simple, I just laid out the lines. I gave yours thumbs up and more, shared and pinned.

      What stumps me is the last couple which I have read include 1-2 lines that I must read 2-3 times because they are like tongue-twisters.

      Ruby - You are enveloped with talent. I'm so glad to see your muse working over-time :) You have described Lucifer just as I imagine him to be - "Lucifer's pulsating tongue darkened, crimson red, choking blood, eyes bulging. The sting of death deepening"

      I'm getting hooked on your poetry and I love it!
