It’s carnival time at Grown in My Heart, and this month’s topic is Poetry.
I have to admit, I don’t think I’ve written a poem since I graduated high school. It’s never once occurred to me to record my feelings, my experiences, my family’s experiences or the topic of adoption by means of a poem. NOT ONCE.
So thank you, Marcie, for pushing me out past my blogging limits.
Have a poem ready to go? Are you up to the challenge of coming up with some prose? Post it on your blog and then link up at Grown in My Heart! (Black turtleneck & clove cig not required)
Twenty Minutes Away
So close, and yet a world a way
Twenty minutes via the interstate
If things had worked out differently,
The brother and sister sound asleep upstairs
Would be twenty minutes away via interstate
And we wouldn’t have ever known them.
The way things did work out?
Not better or worse
Twenty minutes via the interstate,
Yet a world away.
