Grandpa's Prayer Chair

Grandpa’s chair still there

though stables are empty now

ghostly echoes of neighing

still hear Gramps praying

“Please, Lord, let me keep my farm”

blessings bestowed on our clan

*Entry for Rick’s “Chair in Shadowed Room” contest

    Aint it the truth. You have to think of Archie Bunker's chair. When I was a kid, we had an old green chair on the porch. I still remember my dad sitting on that old green chair, pointing out the constellations to me. Love, Dave

    This is a great entry poem for the contest. I really enjoy seeing these cool writes based on pictures. Thanks for your comments today. as for bananas, I just don't enjoy eating them. I do,however, like banana flavored foods and if they are served on icecream or in other dishes!

    this one touched my heart, goes in my favorite, what i have been doing is taking the favorites from soup and making coypies of them, then i put them in a folder, and called it Poems by poetry soup members, just for my enjoyment, i hope that is ok without everyone, so i will do that with this beautiful poem of yours. thank you for commenting on zoo closed.

    Lovely tender choka, my friend. I was half expecting the Monmouth Uni ghostly jockey to sit on the chair.

    LOL Only you would remember that "ghostly experience," Jack. Darn, maybe I should have gone in that direction.

    beautiful choka Carolyn, best of luck in the contest, that scene reminded us both of a barn and a grandparent no longer there, we have so much more in common than just our birthdate don't we
