A to Z Challenge


For the A-Z challenge, we decided to post a new and original poem every day. Today Regina's love comes in a gift made of plastic for the letter "P".

Plastic Love


Empty plastic juice jug
turned upside down with
sticks made into perches,
full of black sunflower seeds
made by you in the light
of missing me.

My own personal 
cardinal show in a bottle.
But with no low pine branches 
outside my window 
isn't an option.

So I set it on the sill, inside
and pretend they come to eat
fluttering in the light
of missing you.

  4. You two make me wish I could write poetry. This one is beautiful and melancholic. Love the last stanza.
