Sitting in the pews –
as silent as a mouse –
the sermon rushed over him
in dribs and drabs,
catching only phrases
of renewal and resurrection and hope
as he daydreamed
so that by the time he bit
into the sugary cheep all he tasted

This is really true of my process. I check in first thing in the morning to see the daily prompt. All day, my mind whirls with thoughts. Today I kept chasing my tail. Is it about the “chicken and the egg”? Is it about the repeating cycle of life and rebirth? I was giving up, it just wasn’t there. Suddenly, it drew breath.
Life hides within the shell
Fragile, delicate, just
A hairsbreadth away from destruction
Ideas lurk within my mind
Teasingly just out of grasp
Nourish with gentle warmth
Or blazing fire (if dragons you seek)
Step back quickly and
A miracle bursts free
you stare at me with your beady eyes
pressuring me to celebrate with you
and your eggs
and your beans of jelly
but are you real
or are you a foamy treat
that I could end quickly with just one bite
And a bright sunny day.
All this tell me that today is special,
That today is going to be a happy day,
That today is Easter Day.
So be happy,
And have a happy Easter,
For I will too,
And I know you will.
Cute! >> #NPM2012: Prompt 8 http://t.co/d73Q1pZA
