Offerings #writephoto

Author’s Notes: The first time I have written a prompt write live from Becci’s house, and I am sat listening to the rain chuck it down as we approach the late summer bank holiday. Thank you Sue for another dash of inspiration, which can be found here

My form is free verse


A token gift of sacrifice
an offering of time and thought
without gaudy wrappings shouting
no expense spared
for the gods cannot be bought
Mother nature shows the way
her gifts of life and love
return kindness with kindness
love with love
a feather from the skies
amid the leaves of changing trees
and fruit to feed the harvest mouse
a thank you to the Earth
our home
our provider
left with love
and the gods smiled at harvest time
