Hand of God

Lily of the Valley

Our partying about the hall
was stopped by writing on the wall.
That magic hand mysteriously
wrote words we didn’t care to see.
Daniel told our heads of state –
the kingdom’s numbered: It’s too late.


Eugenia offers “magic” as this week’s Thursday Prompt. I was thinking of Daniel 5. The hand wrote these words:  מנא מנא תקל ופרסין

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

    1. I can imagine seeing those fingers, strange though they be. I don’t think the fingers held a pen, but they just moved along the wall leaving a mark. It would be as eerie as I imagine it was intended to be.
