What is It?



PAD Challenge, day 15

For today’s prompt, take the phrase “What (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles might include: “What Luck,” “What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas,” “Whatever You Say,” and so on.



What is this thing that drives us to
The tarmac of another day?
A desperation gentle, true
That drives us to our knees to pray
What is this force that rushes through
Our beings; violent, soft as dove
Compelling us to hold, let go…
Oh, I think it must be love
