I have often seen this challenge in the Reader, but never had courage to try it—so today’s the day! I hope our host, Sarah, will be gentle if I’ve made a mess of it 😉
The words we may not use, but must find synonyms for are: Spot, Rub, Round, Flat, Smooth. Here are my synonymous words/phrases: smudge/blemish (spot), pressing against (rub), circular (round), sheet of linen (flat), remove ridges (smooth).
Circular smudge on heart…
Is it leprosy, or merely benign blemish?
I’m repeatedly pressing against it with prayer
Of fervent humbled surrender, repentance
Eager to remove ridges of resentment
Stubbornly lingering unforgiveness
For, surely that’s what it is…
With God’s help, soon it will be healed
Restored…a sheet of fine linen
