Jaws of death, gripped so well; 

like an embrace of the most loving kind.

It was warm, strong & enveloped me completely.

Why jaws; they were arms. A perfect grip!

Why death; it was a result. A perfect finish!

Why death; I welcomed the release, it was providence – destiny.

Thank you for the Badge.

Here is what Shailaja had to say …….

Inderpreet’s interpretation of all three prompts was done with a subtle nuance that compels you to re-read the piece once it’s done. The very fact that the protagonist equates the jaws of death to a warm embrace elevates the scenario from the mundane to the spiritual. Her clever play on the word ‘Why’ throughout the piece is both effective and not overworked.”
