Life-gift or Hollow Token
Writer's Digest PAD challenge: Day 17
For today’s prompt, write an element poem. Maybe an element from the periodic table (hydrogen, oxygen, etc.). Maybe an element of surprise?!? Or a missing element, which could refer to a person, tool, or poem. Run wild with it.
...yes, run wild with it!
Tear the wrapping from this gift
Touch, taste, treasure its fine measure
Let its mercy-morsels sift
Through our bearing, reaching, sharing
Never daring to be slack
For this is a one-time wonder
We can never have it back
...But remember, precious children
Without God we waste this dance
Empty as the hollow token
In a one-night stand romance
