Selfish Betrayal

Three Line Tales Week 82

Selfish Betrayal

I am spirit and naked flesh, promised with eternal heavenly peace.
In a world filled with joy and gifts of fruit, in a beautiful garden of Eden.
However truth, in an apple core, reveals my skeleton on the evolutionary scale.

  3. Nice sense of darkness and unease about this one that marries perfectly with your chosen artwork. Nicely done James.

  4. Death is all the snake could offer. Life is what God offers and living in hope.We image bearers are only manipulated and hated by the evil one.
    A chance is given in life to choose the one we follow. This treasure is in an earthen vessel, live ready and share of the true vine that many will see the life gifted you. Your personal skeleton can speak from the grave because of your witness. Keep living well brother.

  9. WOW, this is phenomenal, impressive. I also really like your tag line, “Fiction Illuminates the Truth”–it has surely been a gift from God to me, that I can write my hard reality into fiction, making it more palatable.
