GloPoWriMo/NaPoWriMo Day 3: Your Skin is Peace

Today’s prompt challenges to make a “Personal Universal Deck,” and then to write a poem using it. Due to lack of time, I lightly followed the rules i.e., instead of making index cards or use paper, I opted for the given personal universal grid table. My chosen words are skin, poetry, coconut, rosary, mountain, sun, and water. The basis of my poem is water and skin.

I.
Your skin speaks
of water poetry.

From the mountains,
streaming resilience.

Love flows
like rosary beads.

Whoever prays on your skin
is free of prejudices.

The glistening sweat
redeems sinners

seen in the salty mirage,
your skin is holy water.

II.
Your skin is holy water
evoking freedom.

A tropical mat
bronzed by the sun,

upon it, the coconut milk shimmers
like a moon river.

Meandering
in the valleys of hurt,

you have made it
to the ocean of forgiveness.

Swimming among the wisest,
your skin is love deep.

III.
Your skin is love deep,
a swan from the dark past.

The future is bright
painted in crayons,

of sailors shipping the sun
in the boats of harmony

to meet the gods
at the boundary of your skin.

This meeting of fate declares
your skin is peace.
