National Poetry Writing Month Eighteen

Prompt-- inspired by Acts 15:39


He doesn't want a divorce
the house splintered by difference

Tired of trying to mend the tatters

The A-frame on the corner
Christmas Eve candles offered
white with white paper disks

Nostalgia isn't holding together

Paul and Barnabas provoked
halving the house between them
alongside a sharp edge

Did schism shred their fellow feeling, too?
