NaisaiKu Challenge!


Zipporah the swallow
Old as time forgotten
Still her fruit was sweet to taste
THE SWALLOW
Still her fruit was sweet to taste
Old as time forgotten
Zipporah the swallow


I am the rose of Sharon
The lily of the valleys
Keeper of the gate guardian of the seal
ROSE OF SHARON
Keeper of the gate guardian of the seal
The lily of the valleys
I am the rose of Sharon

I like them both.

Very nicely written, and a touch mystical!

Thanks for posting to The NaiSaiKu Challenge?

There is something clever in the positioning of all those 'f's in the first one - and with a Biblical twist too using a name like Zipporah.

The second, also with a biblical link, is strong.

Much thanks Stan, I am glad you liked them. I am a little rusty.

Yes Janet it is biblical.
the first is of the old testament and the scond is the new testament.
The Rose of Sharon is Christ.
