Day20: Gave Me A Heart

Gave Me A Heart


I am not getting through

to this thirty-something young guy

we are speaking across this watery gap

two genders

and two generations apart

I can still see him

in my eye’s corner, only seven

and I have his delightful painting

of a pink, yellow and red heart

with a ring of gold glitter

all surrounded by blue

that proves he loved me

who is this man?

Write a poem about a handmade or homemade gift that you have received. It could be a friendship bracelet made for you by a grade-school classmate, an itchy sweater from your Aunt Louisa, a plateful of cinnamon toast from your grandmother, a mix-tape from an old girlfriend. And whatever gift you choose, we wish you happy writing!
