Fledglings

Poetic Asides - Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 003
Writer’s Digest’s Robert Brewer
editor of Writer’s Market
(Prompt from 5/21/08)

Today's prompt is to write a family connection poem--emphasizing the relationship between two or more family members. This can be between you and your parent(s), you and your children, you and your adopted third cousin, twice removed (whatever that means). Preferably, this is a poem between you and another family member or members; but if you must write about the relationship between your two cousins, then you gotta do whatcha gotta do.

Fledglings

there you go again
tugging those apron strings
your fingers
deftly untying knots
faster than I imagined

there you go again
packing up your ideals
your philosophies
and your plans

there you go again
leaving me softly
slipping your tethers
and flying away

here I stand again
empty room
empty house
empty nest

waiting to see you again
whispering my love
watching the three
of you soar
