SWEET TOOTH/ Poetry Prompt #41

A VERY INTERESTING prompt this week, for Poetry Potluck #41.  The subject is SAINTS, MONKS, and MEDITATION.


A tiny winged thing flew
onto the chocolate icing.
It was a mite,
or maybe a minuscule saint
with a sweet tooth.

Who said
a sanctified creature of God
has to be as tall as me
and clad in Titian robes?

It either burrowed
into the sugary darkness
to sleep in saccharine slumber,

or made its way aloft,
tucked into a mouthful
on my silvery fork,

its fate sealed
for a trip to heaven,
because I ate either a fly
or maybe a saint.

I was enjoying the day and forget about the PP41 - however, this poem of yours made my evening, with it's delicious sugary savory treat for my senses.
