Giving


she put her hand upon his chest,

felt the movement

something inside,

beneath flesh wrapping

and bone protection,

a beating heart

gift wrapped in his  warmth

love and security,

it was for her,

tatooed hallmark

her name imprinted

seared as a lasting impression,

to her touch

it revealed a long and

future life,

of happiness and

everyday happenings,

lost socks and incidental kisses,

that was all she needed

an aortic ruby,

wrapped in the one gift

she loved

life

  1. Very beautiful poem. Perfect for the prompt. I wasn’t able to focus or be present for the prompt in my own writing, as I’ve been a bit harried, in part by the doing of it, but also because of a crazily busy time, but this is just spot on – not that that matters. It is a beautiful poem, of course, without the prompt!

    The tattooed hallmark, the aortic ruby, the wrapped in flesh, etc – so many beautiful bits and pieces here.
