Hard-Boiled Egg

09 May 2022  C. chou  1 min read.

A fissure formed
On the outermost layer
Of an otherwise unblemished
White shell

A soft,
Jelly like substance
Gently wobbled
Out of the expanding crack

A snowy white
Glimmers from within
As the barrier
Falls away

A tasty treasure
Bursting out
From the fallen fragments.

Add a little salt
And its ready
To be savored

A beautiful egg
And all
Its wonderous flavors

This poem was inspired by a writing prompt from the “Storyteller’s Vault” Publication
