National Poetry Writing Month- 2017
REQUIREMENTS: We were asked to write an ELEGY for a loved one using poetic license.
AN ELEGY for a LOVED ONE
from sunup to sundown
purposefully driven to gift us
with all the things you never had as a child
needs were always met unquestioningly
but every now and then we’d ask for the moon
and you’d always say
“If frogs had wings they wouldn’t bump their butts.”
Written for The National Poetry Writing Month- 2017.
