Thank You (One Stop Poerty Photo Challenge)

 
Thank you
    for pushing me.
I’d hate to miss Easter services.
I prayed all night
    for help to get there.
I’m surprised no others
    are going,
    unless, I’m late,
    or early.
It is Sunday,
    isn’t it?
I like your after shave,
    so fresh
    like someone left the windows opened last night.
Better than the usual here, you know.
I’ve never seen a volunteer so tall,
    strong,
    and young.
I don’t understand the sword though.
Are you security?
You know I write poetry?
I see things.
God speaks to me.
I need people to read them.
Could you help me?
It’s been such a battle to get them out of here.
Thank you, Michael.

  1. Creative take on the prompt. "I like your after shave, / so fresh / like someone left the windows opened last night." Very cool perspective that reveals a bit of a pleading tone through the questioning. Very well done.
