Prompt 16: Write a poem about love, without ever using the word love in it.
Gentle hands on baby’s shoulders,
Rubbing circles, giving comfort.
Tender kisses on her forehead,
Whispered words of praise and joy.
Caring eyes when she is sick,
Favorite foods prepared with care,
Birthday dress made late at night,
Blackest velvet and white satin.
