PROMPT #20: write a poem about a handmade gift that you have received.
I spent this afternoon watching She (1965 Hammer version) with my daughter because I was dreading trying to rise to the challenge of this prompt. I wound up with a half-baked limerick based on Luke 1:37, 38
For with God nothing shall be impossible.
And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord;
be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.
Eternal salvation’s a gift
From a righteous young maid in a shift
Who had never been laid;
By God’s Spirit hand-made
was her baby, our burdens to lift.
I could have weaseled my way out of this very challenging prompt with a haiku . . . but you were spared this time.
