National Poetry Writing Month- 2017
REQUIREMENTS: Today we were asked to write a poem in the form of a letter to a person, place, or thing, or in the form of a back-and-forth correspondence.
(Yes, I took some liberties with the rules…. That’s what poetry is all about?)
The Pain of Goodbyes
The home place seems destitute without them.
The necessary adventures of exploring the nooks and crannies
A FOR SALE sign awaits
Comic books and Tonka trucks of yesteryear
Harborers of memories long ago forgotten
My, how you have been missed.
The late nights of sneaking up the stairs for a snack.
College group all-nighters in front of my wood stove.
S’mores, for some… BBQ chips and a Dew for you.
What will family mean for me now?
