Nov 26 09: Wonder
November 26, 2009 § 7 Comments
Today’s Poetic Asides prompt was “to write a thankful poem,” not surprising on this day. I like my mother’s new version of our greeting – “Happy Giving Thanks Day.”
My sheets are worn and clean;
I feel your back pressed warm to mine.
And in your breath I hear the ocean swell.
I wondered when you would be gone,
and you responded my wonder. But you can’t
reclaim the time we spent –
the wonder of your warmth remains.
