Last Word

He died A full man It was a Wednesday (just after prayer meeting) He thanked his wife for loving the gap in his front teeth for making him collar greens on Sunday (Though she preferred kale) for Sunday evening walks on concrete, (Though she dreamed of a life near water) He thanked his wife for showing him how to love the way prayer folds silence into the air— then he bowed his head Amen

Deep write, Ramona, Welcome to Poetry soup, I hope you enjoy the community. Here, you will find friendly poets who enjoy supporting one another. I myself, enjoy reading and commenting those who want to be read. The only time I give constructive criticism is when a poet desires it. However, if for some reason the poem is not my field I will guide you to someone who is more qualified than I. Stop by and read one of my poems if you like. My poems are not perfect, but I have a feeling you might like one. I encourage you to check out the contest page and read to receive comments. Tell me a little about your poetic skills if you like. It will be my pleasure to follow and read every poem you post from here on :) We are Lucky To Have you. Your New Poet Friend @-> LINDA <-@
