college girl – reason to rhyme

little scribble for reason 2 rhyme

poem comparing two days in history yesterday and today…

Quiet house
Bedroom empty
The bird has tried her wings

Just you and I
And quiet times
No rockstar loudly sings

Driving back
I touch your hand
pondering what her future brings

    Must say I love this. Well done.

    Our youngest will be moving out (of state) in less than 50 days. Our other daughter is returning to GA at that time.

    The future. What would we do if we really could see the future? Nice poem, minimalist, sad, loving. Three lives changed as time bears them onward.

    Oh…bittersweet. Great communication of the feelings, with a minimum of words. Lovely! My favorite line is “No rockstar loudly sings” – perfect image! Thanks for sharing – can’t wait to see what else you come up with in the weeks to come!

Share your thoughts, I'd love to hear what you have to say.
