Poem of the Month: The Night Before my Husband Leaves

Recently I re-embraced my adolescent love of writing poetry. Many of them are written just for me, but I have written enough that are not as personal and I’d like to share some of them. And so, a blog series is born. These aren’t necessarily my deepest poems, but I do enjoy each of them.

And now, here is this month’s poem, which I wrote while chatting with my husband the night before he left to cover the TED Conference.

The Night Before my Husband Leaves

I like w words –
Whimsical
Wistful
Woebegone
Wanton
Wisteria.
For that matter:
Words.
Why?
I cannot say.

Maybe the oddity
That double-u is really
Double-v (as in French)
Weirdness
Abounds in language
And life unfolds in strange
Ways
Which
Fill me with so much
Wonder.
