Poem A Day Challenge – Day 17

Wow, we’re really past the half way mark. Some days are definitely a grind with work travel and not being able to sit down and even think until the evening. But I have to say, I read the prompt in the morning and manage to scribble down some thoughts during the day. Today’s prompt is to write a dance poem. Tonight we waved off our daughter as she took off on a travel adventure.

Waving Good Bye As She Travels The World

There’s a hum at the gate
And my breath catches
And your smile is both
Innocent and wise
We wave you off
to follow
Your wandering heart
You flash one last
pirate smile
good bye

We’ll count stars
Hours
Full moons
Cirrus strands
Trace the shape of worry
Waiting until you dance back home
