The last day! Unfortunately, also a day when I am feeling quite under the weather, so didn’t have as much time and energy to devote to the final poem as I would’ve liked. Today’s Writer’s Digest prompt was the very wide open suggestion to write a “The ____” poem. I decided to narrow it down a bit with the NaPoWriMo prompt to write about something that happens again and again.
The Sun & You
when you’re in my bed
hot on my neck
the midday sun
next to you
My last Alberta poet of the month is Edmonton writer and artist Laurie MacFayden. In keeping with the “The ___ ” theme, I thought of Laurie’s stunning poem “The Last Night,” from her book Kissing Keeps Us Afloat. It resonates with me especially well, as it reminds me of things I’ve written (or tried to write, perhaps less successfully) about dealing with my Mom’s death. Listen and watch Laurie give a wonderful reading of it here.
