Hiccup in Time




Totally Optional Prompt:
For this week's prompt, revisit a place, person, or idea that was once familiar and that you haven't seen in a long time. Has it changed, or have you?





Dad drove our old Chevy
across the Kansas plain

From knees of baby fat,
I stretched to see out.

Between two farmed hills
a familiar house sat,

my pleas to visit
met Dad's sorry, babe

those folks are strangers,
we’ve never passed this way.


Part of me went up those steps
to that leaded glass door

and into the home I knew,
one I’d loved before.

A kind of confusing sadness to this; I'm sure you must know for sure by now??

Grand and beautiful. Your picture and poem. I liked the story about revisiting an old landmark. At least in your poetry there was something still there.

I think you were already to mine
