Micropoetry Monday

Hope was the diamond merchant’s daughter—
rough, uncut, & in need of a fitting;
then came Pearl, & Hope became a diamond solitaire.

Barren,
Sara let him go.
His new wife was her Hagar,
for when she died,
Sara was Mom, not Aunt.

Poverty, Obedience, & Chastity:
1 person, 3 personalities.
When Faith & Hope got pregnant,
Chastity had to change her name.

She was childless, & yet childfree.
Everything she was, she wasn’t because of someone,
but because of the lack of someone.

Three junkyard dogs, a liar, & a Socialist
all wanted the same thing.
It was beautiful.
