A Soft Knocking ~ the poem

This poem was originally a rather long short story, which I whittled down to just under 500 words for a contest last year. I came across it again this morning and decided to turn it into a poem. It’s rather long for a poem, but give it a read if you’ve got the time. I think you will find it to be quite entertaining.

Suddenly

Claudia, over at dVerse Poets Pub, has asked us to write a poem about change for this, the last poetics feature of the year.  I had another poem ready, hoping it would fit today’s prompt, but I missed it a bit, so I’m going to share an old one that I think definitely fits the theme. I hope you enjoy it.

The Best Christmas Ever

Some of you have seen this poem, but most of the dVerse crowd hasn’t so I’m going to re-run it again. It’s not quite true this year, as Sherry and I are alone on Christmas day for the first time in many years. Mom and Ray have been spending Christmas at our house for close to ten years, and this year they aren’t here. We did get to spend the weekend with them and it was a wonderful couple of days, but the visit was cut short by an approaching storm, and we went our separate ways on Christmas Eve morning, so they could get back to Oklahoma City before the snow started flying. I hope everyone had a great Christmas! Ours was–as usual–the best one ever! I love you, Sherry! Read the rest of this entry »
