Daily Prompt: Diverse
In King Solomon’s Proverbs
in the King James Bible
(and many other bible books besides),
‘diverse’ is spelled ‘divers,’
and you can surely imagine
my six-year-old mind
wondering about those crazy divers
and their temptations,
their weights and measures,
the latter two which made sense
since I pictured ‘skin divers’
in shiny thin black suits
that clung to their skin
and black masks
that hid their faces
that made them seem alien and spy-like
with twin black airtanks
that looked in shape like my kids’ bible illustration
of the ten commandment tablets of stone
except more three-dimensional;
and these divers in their dark ocean
amid dark oceanfloor reeds
that waved and undulated
around their black-flippered feet
like sorts of divers tongues,
these divers were not
diverse in colour
but simply dark and shiny
in their divers places
with divers manners and
hoping for divers miracles,
I guess like we all do.

For the month of May, I will be posting something daily, namely some kind of respond to The Daily Post’s daily prompt or some other prompt, unless a poem or post visits me of its own accord, unbidden and welcomed.
oh my gosh. I love it. Those crazy divers. It does make sense!
Well, thanks! I wasn’t sure if it would only make sense to my brain. LOL.
So funny and such an unexpected topic. I’d read once in Ireland about divers fruits and that sent my mind a flutter. What a sweet reverie this.
Isn’t it weird? But it’s what came immediately. Divers fruits…ooohhh! Thank you!
