Hoping to connect again through poetry



Connect


Daddy was once a little boy
restless on a Manhattan stoop.
That little boy swallowed hardship
as his mind stretched like landscape.
That little boy imbibed a laughing room
as his spirit ascended cold flat roofs.
Six decades elapsed when that little boy
pieced together with a waiting universe.
Daddy’s daughter sits restless in the rain
looking through the nowhere for his grin



Today we honor all who gave so much for our freedom.
God bless our military and their families.
Happy Memorial Day!

Kelly this is such a beautiful poem and am I assuming right that it is dedicated to your dad? It sounds like he was a wonderful man and that you two were close. I hope you're doing something fun today. We had our long weekend last weekend.

This is a wonderful poem Septembermom. I especially love the lines: "That little boy swallowed hardship...as his mind stretched like landscape."

Great imagery in this piece and I hope you enjoyed your Memorial Day.
