Locked into the sphere
Held captive by
Omnipotence

Loved by the Creator
who separated the dark
from the light
and water from
Earth

From dawn to dusk
they repeat
Sun to Moon
and back again

Toothless grin to
toothless grimace

Swimming round
and round again

Perspective changes with
the prisms of life
like a rainbow after the rain

None-the-less
Swimming round
the
Cycle of life

  1. Dear Amy: Love the Creationist take on the prompt!
    I particularly like;

    "Toothless grin to
    toothless grimace"
    Never thought of it that way, but now that you mention it! Wow! Maybe heaven is for the toothless? (dentists and denturists may not feel that way! hahah!) Great poem and take on the prompt! Very original. Putting you on "fav"!

  3. I got lost in the beauty of your words..A feeling that is like little butterflies sailing through the air and makes you smile.
