Heal / G is for Guilt / #AtoZchallenge #NaPoWriMo #AMWRITING



NaPoWriMo Day 8 Prompt: Today I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that relies on repetition. It can be repetition of a phrase, or just a word.

Sorry gods of the A to Z challenge. I am guilty of writing a poem instead of flash fiction today. Mea Culpa. I hope to return to flash fictioning again on Monday. Write On!



Can the caress of sea breezes

scented with salt

Heal your rancor?

Can the sun warm on winter cheeks

promising wellness

Heal your bitter?

Can the taste of ambrosia

amazing, succulent

Heal your guilt?

Can a song serenaded stridently

transporting you to time before

Heal your hate?


Soon, alone, charred inside,

does anything remain

to heal you?
