Poem-a-Day Day 22







This is the prompt for today:

2011 April PAD Challenge: Day 22
Posted by Robert

For today’s prompt, write an “only one in the world” poem. This only one in the world might be a person, an animal, a place, or an object. Think of someone or something unique and write.

My poem:

The Magnolia Flower in My Vase

The fact that you balance there
opening in the morning
and closing tightly at night
spilling your perfume
as if you were still on the tree
I wrenched you from
in the J.C. Penney’s parking lot
somehow broke my heart,
but you are one blossom
I have loved enough
to mourn the passing of
Is that enough?

  1. Hope you’re alright! Just hearing about the tornadoes..

  2. We are about 40 miles north of where they were, but we had thunderstorms and watched the internet radar and wreather for hours. I don’t think we would fare well in this big tin box – but we did have a cellar close by. Thanks for thinking of me!
