The Writer’s Island prompt was “Wondrous,” and I knew exactly where this would lead… Amy


O, the wondrous healing balm
comforting consolation

Whether this wellspring of pain
came from a broken romance
a broken promise
or a broken nail

All is made whole and well
by the soothing touch
of chocolate upon one’s tongue
