Tomorrow is D-Day. That is, Due Day for Tammy and I and our first daughter, Hannah Marie. We’re super excited (and, yes, a little stressed). If everything goes as it should, I’ll be posting images on Facebook and my blog. So keep an eye out.
For this week’s prompt, write a welcoming poem. You could be welcoming a stranger, a friend, an enemy, a season, a new way of life, etc. Of course, I’m going to use this prompt to write my first poem (of many) for Hannah Marie.
Here’s my attempt:
meteorologists give air quality alerts
and radio commentators
mention the beauty
of a full moon
filtering the light
i wish i could tell you the world
will be perfect
when you arrive like the moon
but there is a beauty
in our imperfections
and the way
we try to look at things
light shines and reflects
we have faith
