POETRY | SPIRITUALITY | LIFE LESSONS

With Morsels

Poetic response to Tuesday’s prompt

A vast feast lies before me —
comfort food of my youth
lush cuisines of the world
and rich desserts to tempt me
I hear the voice telling me —
indulge!
How often have I listened?
— plunged right in ’til bloated
— crawled away, miserably full
— berated myself, in spite of myself
Led around by the noose of ego
I’ve hung myself a million times
Aren’t I equally satisfied with morsels?
