MAG 105

"Hello, Dad?"
"Dad?"
"Dad."

"Dad, I."

"DadIloveyou."


I LOVE PLAYING WITH WRITERS AND WORDS AND IMAGES AND NEW FRIENDS
An Afterword:
I must admit that, given my penchant for the comedic take, I did
at first want to go with:

"Yes.  Yes, Mildred.  I will bring home milk.
No.  I haven't forgotten"

but......I didn't.

Oh my, this made me cry. I lost my father when I was 10 and that is 31 years ago. I wanna say those words repeatedly to him. Something that I was not able to tell him...

Love this...

I like it. Would be a good small stone if you wanted to call it that.

Mimi Foxmorton said...

Christopher- I love small stones. I missed them this year. :)

JJ- Remembering tears are good. My Blessings to you.

Laurie Kolp said...

Both are great = )

Karen said...

Great fun!

Helena said...

I loved the last dad line! I prefer funny, too.........!

Linda said...

I enjoyed the contrast. The first poem is a positive expression of caring and the second, more negative. Both are everyday happenings and just about everyone can identify with either scenario. Thank you for sharing this expressive response x2.

Two opposing emotions here.

So packed with feeling...amazing..and with just a few words..excellent.

Trellissimo said...

Could the first one say "Dad, aye!" instead of "Dad,I"?
Sounds the same, but makes more sense to a Brit!

Sue said...

Two for the price of one!

Ah now what was it which prevented him from shopping for milk? His mind too full of ‘stuff’?
