(A poem written from a prompt as part of 2015’s April PAD Challenge from Writer’s Digest – the prompt being to pick an adjective, make it the title of your poem, and then, write your poem.
What lies next to us each night,
What we hold tightly in our hands,
What we gaze at with misty eyes,
What we slavishly smell and savour,
What we taste with trembling tongue,
What we hear in the sweetest tones,
What we shall treasure most of all,
What desires within will drive us to,
What we shall tirelessly protect,
Those things so precious to us.
