Poem - Seraph Borne

The poem “Seraph Borne” was prompted by the words “fallen feather”. The restrictions of the prompt disallowed the words feather, angel, or falling.


Seraph Borne

Seraph borne to the ground
with lack of wings to rise above
don’t feel sorry for the guardians
leaving duties for low play

once the holy could resist
the carnal lures of the flesh
or the passion of escape
sinking lower to partake

struck from high to walk among
mortals striving to achieve
blessings lost to the drop
by the spirits disgracing God

when temptation rules the day
even saints choose to roam
at the risk of plunging low
to amuse the watching fools.
