Finally, the last poem!!! This has been one of the hardest April Poetry Months I think I have ever done.I just didn't have anything to say. Every night I struggled and procrastinated and tried to decide whether I should just quit. I kept going, but I wrote lots of embarrassingly bad poetry. Oh well, I tried.
Poem the last is an Abecedarian.
"An Abecedarian of Wonderments"
Always keep you heart open
Because you are bound to be blessed by baseball sunsets,
Coffee and companionship,
Dogs, always dogs, and deliciously yellow daffodils.
Entendiendo en español,
Fellowship and friends, flair pens too,
Grandbabies, even if they aren’t exactly blood,
Hamburgers with crispy french fries, and calories removed,
Ice cream, preferably soft serve chocolate and vanilla twist,
Just a few extra minutes of sleep,
Kindnesses from kindergartners,
Laughter that lasts long,
Memories of moments,
Nice neighbors and new friends,
Ocean, all things ocean,
Pools, puppy kisses, and peaceful days,
Quietness of early mornings with time in the Word,
Read aloud and the rhythm of rain,
Sunshine dancing across shiny wood floors,
Tulips, turning the world red and yellow and pink,
Until they are replaced by purple and white iris,
Vast Colorado blue skies,
Walks in spring, just before sunset,
Xtra minutes of light, or extra guacamole,
You only need to watch carefully,
Zoom in, wonders will be waiting.
