What's Left?

At day’s end I came to the egg.
I had cried all the tears left in the sac.
Only me and it, and the shadows now.
Did it matter, really, what had happened?
I had magic in my hand. In this egg
lay the seeds of unknown future.
I cradled it. Later I could decide.

This is a flash poem, because blogmeister Mr. Knowitall digs it when people write micro-work for his Flash 55 Fridays, and I dig Mr. Knowitall.

I do indeed dig it.
And I especially dig it when the very talented Enchanted Oak participates.
Loved your 55 Chris.
I always get exceited when I see your Avatar, I then know I'm in for a treat.
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

Oh my- nice work. I don't have any hens that set right now, but I certainly cry over broken shells.

Your words are the perfect side order for a photo I almost couldn't take my eyes off of!

A good reason not to put all my eggs in one basket.
