Wednesday Poetry

 

Today’s prompt is to write a poem about something empty. ^_^

Of course, anyone who wants to can try a poetry prompt at the Poetic Asides website! If you have the slightest interest in it, you should give it a try!

 

More Empty Than I Thought it Would Be
My youngest son
moved out,
moved on.
(Of course, he left a lot of his stuff behind.)

And now, instead of
empty plates
and cereal boxes
and ice cream containers

the house is very empty now.

And instead of
full laundry hampers
and waste bins
and family room

the house is full of silence now.

Or maybe it’s just me that’s empty.
