Breath and Bone

eons ago

time before time

waters split

and lands rose

there I stood

seeing the universe

created

wondering at the majesty of

it all

Am I more than breath and bone?

more than air and sea?

millenium spans

time after time

rocks break

and seas rose

there I sat

amoung the relics

crafted

wondering at the majesty

of it all.


This poem is directly inspired by the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge at found here at Go Dog Go Cafe. The prompt this time was “ Am I more than breath and bone?”. I am working through older prompts to help spark my imagination. Tune in tomorrow to see the new challenge for this week! Photo by Sean O. on Unsplash.
