Receive, or: Deceive

Receive truth ~ But this to
Believe in: all world religions are
Deceiving. Still, mortals struggle to
Conceive; as from lived suffering, no
Reprieve; that by it, nothing great's
Achieved ~ other than earthly wisdom.

W3 poetry prompt

This poem was written in response to murisopsis’ W3 prompt ~ to write a poem of no less than four lines with a ‘monorhyme’ as either the first word in each line or as the last word in each line (this means: ‘a single common rhyme’ in every line).

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

  1. I’ve never thought of doing a monorhyme on the first words of a poem. Definitely going to have to try that. I like what you came up with.
