The Bottomless Pit - (Poem to continue the challenge by Frank Atanacio to honor April Poetry Month)

Updated on October 6, 2016

Her name should be April

When Frank Atanacio threw down the gauntlet, to challenge us hubbers to write, a poem to add to the one he started.

If this is to be a tribute to April's Poetry Month, then the name of the endangered soul should be April.

So....this is my second verse to (The One Who Laid April Here) the Poetry challenge by Frank Atanacio's.

Lake of Fire

Source

The Bottomless Pit

The demons run the gamut

And their only goal

To recapture April's soul

But the demons had not foreseen

The band of summoned Angels

That to April they would reveal

That the demons are unclean

And unclean spirits don't make it any higher

Than the bottomless pit

Filled With the unquenchable fire


- by Shyron Shenko

In the beginning

Frank offered up a challenge

For each of us to write

So many hubbers Joined

The poems have really taken flight


---by Shyron Shenko

The fires of hell

The End - Without the soul

      Au fait, thank you for the comment, compliment and for sharing this. Yes I was out cutting grass and cleaning up from the storm.

      Shower? More like a long bubble bath until I look like a prune, at least the part of me that is in the water...

      Blessings and hugs dear friend.

      Still a great work and sharing it again.

      Sorry you must be out cutting grass. :( I will soon have to go out into it too, and I'm dreading it. My sympathy is with you dear friend. Hope you are looking forward to a cool shower and a good sleep, and that it will transpire to that. Blessings . . . take care . .

      Au fait, thank you for the comment and for sharing. Me too, but it is really just that we hear more about them when they expire.

      Hope it is cool enough for you. Our heat pump went out yesterday.

      Excellent poem and great choice of photos, too. I miss Johnny Cash. It's got to where I know more dead people than live ones.

      Sharing this of course.

      Hope all is well with you guys. Take care . . .

      Au fait, thank you for the comments and for sharing, I don't know but I would bet that you could do a good job of writing poetry.

      No we have not made ourselves sick, but worn out. Soon it will be sold and we will no longer need to take care of her lot.

      Hope all is well with you.

      Blessings and Hugs.

      Thought I would come back and share this again. How you are able to come up with so many poems about so many different things I will never know. I do not have that gift. But I certainly admire it in you.

      Hope you haven't made yourself sick mowing the neighbor's yard. Take care . . .

      Frank, are you going to choose which is the best? You have your job cut out for you if you have to pick which is the best.

      I do thank you for the comment, and compliment on mine.

      Hi Moms, yes I did have fun writing this. I read your also. Like Frank said I can't believe how great these poems are. I would not be able to choose which is the best.

      Yes, I do like April for her name.

      Thank you for your comment.

      You wrote more than one, wow. You were inspired. I can see why. I had fun writing mine today and in reading the countless others, I run the risk of being swarmed by words again.

      You really did like April for her name. Nice.

      Thank you Au fait, I am sure glad you did not get the storm that hit TWU.

      I like Johnny Cash maybe I should have used The Devil Went Down to Georgia.

      Maybe a fellow hubber will see my thank you message and use it.

      Thank you for the comment, vote up, sharing and pinning.

      Glad you are okay my friend.

      That is a great one Shyron. It was a perfect addition to Frank's poem.

      I love that song too, Johnny Cash was a favorite but I have not heard him since I packed my LP player.

      Shyron, another devilishly good contribution. Sorry about the oxymoron. Well done. I'll be posting my second poem soon.

      A great warning, to be careful what one subscribes to. Haven't heard Johnny Cash sing that song in a long time. Always loved it. Excellent poem as always, but I still miss your drawings which are also superb!

      Voted up, AI, and will share. Also pinned to AH.
