Non-poetry announcement: The Brewer family moved into a house this past weekend. After years of cluttering up an apartment, we made the decision in late-April to start searching and–bam!–just like that we found one, made a bid, and here we are. We’re super excited and a little tired (from moving all those books).
For this week’s prompt, write a new surroundings poem. The new digs could be a house, new work environment, the great outdoors, hotel room, etc. It can be exciting, sad, scary, and about any other emotion you can imagine.
And by the way, here’s what our house looks like (with Tammy and a few of the tiny poets on the front porch):

rocking chair knocked over
single window pane broke
door ajar & glass clumped
around the opening
gone for just a moment
& home won’t be the same
