Shivers are rising
I can't control them
Pray away anger

       Pray away anger
       Receive calm tranquility
       Leave it at the cross

              Leave it at the cross
              Never sleep on arguments
              Make your peace again

                     Make your peace again
                     Put all crosses away
                     Except the real one


This poem is in response to the prompt I've provided at one single impression.

thanks doesn't quite say what I the way I wanted but there's something about the gaps that is strong and necessary.

We should not be "cross" but remember the cross - such a powerful reminder.

I'm liking your poem, Emma. Especially the line, repeated,
"Leave it at the cross."

Leave it to the Mediator.
Thank you for this nice prompt word. I didn't do justice with it but even for the short time I had it was a fun write.
