Flash Friday 55: Passion's Call

Passion prepares a bountiful feast,
piercing the flesh of sacrificial beast.

Sinner falters, stumbles, then falls
towards bounty’s sweet siren call.

But is this of heaven or trickery of one
who tempts the naïve, for souls to be won?

Ah, but morsels so sweet, and savory too,
can only be found in love of You.


I am participating in Flash Friday 55. This weekly meme is brought to you by G-Man over at Mr. Know it All. The object is to write a story or prose in exactly 55 words. Come join us and link your 55 over in Mr. Know it All's comment section.

Plenty of food for thought there, and great conclusion. Only in Him can we find true wholeness and satisfaction.

I know this may be an inappropriate response to something written so beautifully, but as an old Buzzard, would you mind giving me the phone number of the Siren that called?

Sorry about that, I'm a life long sinner in a slow recovery.
