NaPoWriMo 2022 Day 4

Charlotte Hamrick

Broken Eggs

Little girl is
focused on not disturbing
the eggshells
on the floor or
straying outside the lines

slippery yolks scramble
her balance
one day a smothering
then a smattering
then a smothering again

Yet she watches a dawn
breaking new magic every day
sees a clean chance every day
for eggs that are fresh
and whole

With thanks to artist Gaynor Kane and Paul from The Wombwell Rainbow for this prompt.
