Todays theme was passion and the writing prompt that got me started was "Hearts and Hands open..." I had trouble getting started because most of the things I am passionate about dont lend themselves to poetry immediately. Finally I found the images to write about some events of the past year I felt very deeply about indeed.
Lifeline from a Lighthouse
You washed up on the shore
Of our hearth and hearts.
We threw you a lifeline and took you in.
It was neither your fault nor ours
That the tsunami engulfed you again
And at least for now
Pulled you beyond our reach.
But should the tide reverse for you
We are still here, the safe port.
We keep the signal light burning in the lighthouse
Never knowing when you might struggle to our shore again.
