Today’s prompt was to write a poem about food, whether a specific food or one’s relationship to food in general. This is a difficult topic for me because I struggle with my relationship to food and with nourishing myself physically. I decided to write a Rubai about this topic.
Caught in the grip of illness,
Anxiety and dieting lead to the wrong success.
Get me off the road to death,
I ask for God my life and food to bless.
