Your poem is intense, gripping, and powerful. Well worthy of the top 8.
Beautiful comparison of prodigals in "different times and places". This poem held me and has stayed with me.

What an intense poem. It was beautiful in every way - especially the Biblical message. Even though I knew hte story, I was holding my breath, and the poem left me breathless.

Amen. Nicely done! God bless ya, littlelight
This is a really powerful poem and deserves a win. Beautiful writing from 'another time another place' The Return' should be placed in an anthology of poems.
The prodigal "road trip" is perhaps the best example we can hope to emulate!!

Well written poem, Sandra. Good insights. I particularly liked :'In a nightmare of his choosing.'
